A Visit to the Catawba Trail Farm

This week a team from the Merrick-Moore Community went on an inspirational visit to Catawba Trails Farm in North Durham, a Urban Community AgriNomics (UCAN) property.

Delphine Sellers, executive Director and her sister Lucille were gracious hosts in sharing the history of the farm, their successes, failures and future vision for the farm. We received valued information to use in the development of our garden.

They also blessed us with fresh mint that grows abundantly in their garden. I was smiling on my way home as the scent of mint filled my car. I had visions of mint tea, mint in a glass of lemonade and even my makeshift version of a Lynchburg Lemonade… YUM!
