Giving back to our community and sharing our passion for gardening, one garden at a time

Outreach & Events

Community Outreach

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.

The Exceptional Foundation of East Alabama is a nonprofit organization established to serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and provide opportunities for those participants to thrive and be engaged in social and recreational activities.  

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!

Mustard Seed Farm and Market

Mustard Seed Farm and Market was created to offer employment and job skill training for adults who have disabilities. Their plan is to provide meaningful work that will help participants gain the skills they need to be successful within the horticulture industry.  

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!
