Let the celebrations begin…. Our first bed was installed in Kingfield yesterday! BH Urban Farmers Stefan Meyer & Seth Schlotterbeck, Executive Director Paula Westmoreland & I worked to put our first keyhole bed in a front yard where several curious folks stopped to find out what we were doing. We even had a very enthusiastic little volunteer named Malachi from next door.
