From their website:
“This property has been in our family for over 100 years. My great grand father George Teaford owned a portion with his good friend T.G. Hart who acquired it for mining and logging in 1901. I got the wonderful opportunity to acquire interest in the mid 1990’s and began to manage the property! Now we are applying our 25 years experience in the reforestation and forestry business to manage our own tree farm.

Everything Lavender at Willow Bridge Books on Saturday, November 27
Sandy Schafer presented a workshop on lavender and scented geraniums for the Mountain Laurel Garden Club, two years ago, even providing Lavender Iced Tea and Lavender cookies. The members were able to get all their questions answered and ended up carrying off half the plants for sale at Busse’s Hardware! This event should be just as informative.
Lavender Tea Party – Sandy Schafer, “Accidental Gardener”
Lavender Tea Party is all about lavender, a plant widely grown in the garden for many uses. If you want to know more about the plant, come learn from Sandy Schaefer, a self-described accidental gardener and lavender enthusiast.

Care for Your Trees in Winter
