Growin’ A Future

image Matt had a dream of having his own business and through hard work and lots of help from family and friends, he built a greenhouse on his family's farm. Matt decided to grow herbs in his greenhouse and sell them to the public for cooking. He grew his first crop this summer and was able to sell some of his herbs to people in the community, though was unable to afford the fees to sell them at the Farmers Market and was not able to sell as much as he had wished. Through some research and investigation a distributor was found who will buy his herbs next year and they will be sold at a local health food store in Boone. Matt was happy that his business was showing potential and that he had found a market for his product. A recent wind storm brought some deflation for Matt when the roof was blown off his greenhouse and all his plants were frozen. He will have some hard work ahead to repair his greenhouse and prepare for his next growing season, but he has not given up hope of realizing his dream

Clownin’ Around

Because of a gracious donation, the residents of Three Forks Home were able to attend the Shriners Circus in Boone on 10/29/09. They all had a great time and enjoyed the animals, and most of all, the motorcycles and their unbelievable stunts!

Three Forks Beach Bumz

The guys at Three Forks Home enjoyed a week at Atlantic Beach in September this year and their days were filled with swimming, eating seafood, sailing, and fishing. Everyone had a wonderful time and all are looking forward to going again next summer. Roby and Ben saw the ocean for the first time in their lives and didn't even mind getting wet. Roby, who is not a traveler, said that he had so much fun that he would like to go back again next year!
