- and so it begins
We came to this property fifty years ago and planted Christmas trees. What did not sell grew too large and today the old pine trees serve as a home to deer, turkey and occasionally some bears visit the neighbors bee hives for a snack. The hives are temporarily relocated but the bears still check in once in awhile with high hopes. Just don't leave any food out and we will not give them a reason to come snooping. fyi-We do not permit hunting and ask you keep your firearms secured and stowed.
We invite guest to park and enjoy the quiet beauty of our private park. As soon as practical we will add amenity services so we can expand our guest list and activity offerings. The first planned addition is a pavilion with restrooms and will host Saturday yard sales and afternoon music. Bible studies can meet here during the week. The sorghum cooker will serve as a community grill. Bring your own items for the grill and your beverages in a cooler and enjoy the company of community. Please NO glass containers.
The property around you is planned to grow sweet sorghum and a community garden. Over the years we have learned life is nothing without community. Folks joining in for good times and buying and selling and even trading to have commerce and fellowship.
2-4-1 Swap and Sell will be kicking off in front of the prayer trail in May, 2021. The second and fourth Saturday from 10-2. It will be a flea market format and clothing sellers ONLY can swap and trade with others before the event opens to the public. These folks are serious clothing sellers. Think about joining them as a seller too.
In July we will feature ice cold watermelon and hot dogs and with a bit of luck, some pickers and singers. There could be a volleyball game or two as well. More on this as we get closer.
The garden may give us some produce for the community table and those wishing to participate in the garden for their own tables can send a message to us. It would be really nice to have some corn on the cob in our cooker during the festivities.
The sorghum will not be ready until September so keep coming around and that will be a long day of sweet success. Meanwhile share the good news that Hundley-Reynolds Park has a Prayer Trail and is eagerly waiting for visitors. We look forward to meeting you 'along the trail' or out front at the swap and sell. Please share your comments so we can grow into a better experience for our community. Blessings on you and yours.
** Note we are operating Swap and Sell on the second Saturday of each month until October 8th. The web calendar will only let us post 5 events so mark your own in your phone to stay notified- 2nd Saturday each month.
