About those angels at the Farm….
Thanks to Bethesda Barn Builders, Skidaway Farms is now home to some incredible heart-felt memorials for gardeners and builders-past. These gifted volunteer woodworkers…there are presently 17 men in the group… have designed and built the Southern Pine benches you see around the Farm. Dedicated by Friends of the Farm, some of the benches are gentle reminders of those who loved to garden and are sorely missed while other benches honor folks who are supporters of the Farm. Bo Wolf, Bethesda Barn Builders’ present Director, made sure one of their benches was dedicated to deceased barn builders who had been with the group since its inception. Jack Fisher, chief designer for the group’s projects, founded the volunteer builders to help renovate an old barn at Bethesda Boys School in 1993. Many barns, benches and bridges later, Bethesda Barn Builders continues to grace our community with projects at Delegal Marina, the Landings’ Nature Trail, UGA’s Marine Extension, the newly-renamed Bethesda Academy and, of course, Skidaway Farms. Bravo, gentlemen! We are all honored to admire your work!
Come visit Skidaway Farms to see the work of the Bethesda Barn Builders and the many talented Farmers of Skidaway Island! Or join the festivities on May 15th for a great supper and lots of camaraderie! Tickets are on sale for one and all at The Landings Company offices (open everyday 9-5). If you would like to purchase a bench to honor a gardener in your life contact Blake Caldwell at 404-964-8409 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Skidaway Farms is on McWhorter Road going towards Modena — bear left at the fork and in one half-mile turn left onto the gravel drive… next to the Skidaway Farms sign. The Farm is open every day from “sun-up to sundown”.
