So much has happened over the past 3 years since the Farley Center was created, thanks to the generosity of the Farley family and the work of many others. This month the fourteenth burial happened at our green cemetery, the Natural Path Sanctuary. This summer there are nine farm businesses growing organically at the Farm Incubator, about 100 CSA member families eating the farmers' fresh produce, and the Spring Rose Growers Cooperative has helped the first immigrant farmers in Wisconsin to achieve organic certification.
If you have been part of making the Farley Center grow to where we are today, thank you so much. If you are just learning about us, please come out August 17 or 18 to learn more.
