Yesterday’s garden tour and tasting was extra special. Our friends at mindfulCity and WSVN channel 7 were on hand to capture Chef Julie in action! The visit will be aired in July on ch.7’s Money Monday discussing where to find life enriching activities in your area that are easy on the wallet. It was an honor to have been selected to participate in this segment and we are truly thankful.
