Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes


We have an incredible Director of Development at our Birth Center. Beth Enson recently wrote a grant to fund a small fruit tree orchard and bushes. We were awarded the grant and this amazing woman took it upon herself to buy the trees from an incredible, local farmer, pick them up and organize crews of children to dig holes and plant the trees. It will be incredible to see these trees flourish and grow. I imagine picking fruit during a birth, one of those many births where I have flown out of the house with no time to make or bring food with me. Summers and fall will nourish the midwives and the mamas!
