The Ribbon Cutting for Sand Hill Farm was last Thursday, June 20th. We’re pleased to have our Certificate of Occupancy and our first tenants are moving in this weekend!

We were pleased with the turnout. 30 -40 people were there including representatives from the Town, County and Region. WNDU (story here) and ABC57 (story here) covered it as well as Max 98.3, WTCA (story here) the Culver Citizen and the Pilot News. The article from the Pilot News is to the right and it was reprinted in the Culver Citizen as well. We can’t say enough about our appreciation for the show of support.

All of the news stories were quite positive. They took the time to give some background and discuss the goals. Thanks to Amber Cowell, Culver Park Superintendent, and Chris Kline, Culver Academies Senior Instructor and Sustainability Director, for their reinforcement of the larger goals in the television coverage.
