Last Friday, we had a few special guests at the barn! Actually, two busloads of curious kids from the Center for the Visually Impaired. Thanks to their tour guide (and our Executive Director) Rosa McHugh, they took an adventure around the barn. From tasting basil out of the garden to smelling rosemary to hearing a bee buzz to petting Chuck's furry little back -- Farm Chastain awakens the senses.

Sharna lives in Decatur with her husband and best friend, Rob and their two dogs, Pete and Jacoby. She wishes they were here with her today to hang out at the barn and go for a walk.

Planting flowers, chopping wood, mowing grass. That's just a few of the things Heather Michael of the Mount Paran area has been doing a couple hours a day for the past few weeks. As a volunteer for the CPC, Heather says it makes her happy to get outside and do some gardening at the place she loved as a kid and still does to this day. "Volunteers like Heather add to the spirit of what we're trying to do here," said Ray Mock, Director of Operations. In other words, it's not just the flowers from Saul's Nursery. It's also people like Heather who truly brighten the landscape here at Chastain Park. It's simple to volunteer at the Chastain Park Conservancy.
