On Sept. 26, a sunny and warm fall day, the English as a Second Language (ESL) group visited the newly established Big Rock Ranch on Bates Road, Buffalo Creek.
Attendees strolled through the horse paddock to the ‘travelling’ chicken coup, before inspecting the extensive vegetable gardens and processing area.
The final stops included the solar-powered tiny home and the indoor growing area.
To round off the outing, ESL member Elisabeth invited everyone for coffee and pie, while soaking up rays of sunshine.
