Anne Marie Watson, long-time team member,  found she had some extra time on her hands in March 2012 after the tragic fire shut Grits Café down, so she set out to get to work. She dug up and planted a 9,000 square foot garden, and started growing produce.

Most is produced organically, and heirloom seeds used whenever available. Read More
