‘Welcome to our garden’

This past Thursday, a group of community volunteers joined Wakulla County Extension staffers to help plant a garden at the Wakulla County Public Library in Crawfordville. But this isn’t just any garden: It’s a 4-H food forest. It’s intended to be more than a vegetable garden, more than a flower or herb garden. The flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruits have been selected because they all work well together in their particular micro-climate, from firebush flowers that attract pollinators to the marigolds that repel some garden pests, including nematodes.

As a family they farmed, fished, hunted and shared their bounty with family and neighbors during the Depression years. Edwin loved football and played for the Sopchoppy Yellow Jackets during his high school years. He declined an offer to play college football at Troy University to begin working and marry the love of his life. After graduating he joined the Tallahassee Fire Department. He also surveyed on his days off and began his long career as a professional land surveyor. He left the fire department after 12 years of service and founded Edwin Brown & Associates in 1976, a legacy business still run today by his son.

KEVIN HALE: A save by Timmy and hermit crabs

I just got back from a trip to Florida. My trips to Florida are a mystical thing for me. I go on them to talk to God and whatever wild angels protect me. I look out over the ocean and crawl deep inside myself and search the caverns and labyrinths of my mind and heart. I try to find answers and I try to find missing pieces to my soul in the hope I can become a better husband, father, friend, teacher and coach. I love to go where no man has gone before, especially when I feel broken.
