WHAT TO EXPECT

Over the course of the afternoon at Ferrell Hollow, we'll be doing a variety of things! Here's a list of what you can expect:

  • Create a Memorial Garden for public viewing in our cemetery

  • Planting trees, putting in a split rail fence, general clean up, moving downed limbs

  • Potential interactions with the Farm's horses (because this is a rehabilitation facility, some horses are shy and will avoid interacting with people, while others will likely get curious about what's going on and come say hey)

  • Great camaraderie among your fellow volunteers
