Fall Planting @ Red Bird Mission ~~ Chad Brock ~~

         Fall planting is well underway here at our Grow Appalachia sight, and considering the weather I am impressed by our production numbers, Thank GOD! I have been going around doing some home visits and assisting families in planting some fall plants " Appalachian Staples" such as lettuce, mustard, Turnips, beets , radishes and those sort of things. These crops will provide some very healthy produce through the upcoming winter months.

This is what we started with GRRR!

          I have also been taking some video interviews with some families and this is just so very rewarding . For these families to give a very heart felt testimony on how much Grow Appalachia has helped them and how close they have come to me really makes me feel good. This program means so much to these people and I have built such a close relationship with them. I will post some of these interviews later in the week
