Roe Edwards Farm Chestnut Orchard event exemplified the spirit of determination and commitment, echoing the United States Postal Service creed: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Special recognition goes to SFCG members Brendia King and Thomas and Lillian Barber, who braved the rain on Friday to contribute to the event's success.

Despite challenging weather conditions, 17 participants actively participated in planting chestnut trees. Over the two days, participants gathered at Roe Edwards Farm to plant over 800 Chestnut trees. The varieties planted included Payne, AU Super, and the Hong Kong varieties.

The event was about tree planting and served as an educational platform for the participants and local students. Participants learned various essential aspects of chestnut tree cultivation, such as proper planting techniques, ideal soil and pH, tree protection methods, and understanding of tree maturity.

Roe Edwards Farm extends sincere thanks and gratitude for their support and involvement to all participants, contributors, and Charlie Grace, South Region Outreach Coordinator from USDA NRCS, for their unwavering dedication, making the event memorable and successful. Roe Edwards Farm will host additional future chestnut technical workshops.
