When I established Southern Home & Farm, it was important to me to establish a way to give back to the community that helped shape our lives. Southern Prosperity is our charitable arm that allows us to return blessings to our community—to bring out the best in it and help it thrive.

I had the opportunity to visit my friends and tour the beautiful gardens at EFEA. They recently hosted me and provided an amazing facilities tour and an inside look at day-to-day activities. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon both inside and outside the garden! I made so many new friends, both participants and mentors. This entire group truly embodies their namesake…they are all EXCEPTIONAL!

I was extremely honored to speak at their Summer Night Seminar Series event on ‘Garden Planning and Design’. We had an amazing night of garden learning, food, fun and giveaways! Proceeds benefited this extraordinary cause and went towards their capital campaign. They are still in need of a climate controlled building, which will provide an additional safe space for participants to work. Please join me in supporting this remarkable cause!
