A lot happened during 2011 at Stearns Homestead. We obtained a new greenhouse thanks to the generosity of funds provided by the Parma Hospital Foundation. In 2012, we will be starting seeds for our annual plant sale and also starting our heirloom veggies for the youth group to learn about historical plants and growing
from seed to table. We will sell the vegetables at the Farmer’s Market!
We would like to thank Jim Georgeson, Dana Valensky, Joe Porach and Denny Hrilcka for all their help in assembling the greenhouse. Here are photos of their progress Green House Photos
And we can’t forget our big flood- of course we stayed to take photos and make sure the animals were safe. Flood Photos
The Youth Club had a wonderful trip to Broadview Multi Care Center where they had the opportunity to show off their animals. Everyone had a great time- one resident even tried to take one of the ducks!!! Broadview Multi Care Center Visit

Our Christmas at the Farm Event turned out well, with nice weather. Santa and Mrs. Claus were their to greet children, and guests could tour the Horse Barn! One youngster slept through everything but sure clutched his candy cane tight while he dreamed of Christmas. Christmas on the Farm 2011
