It doesn’t look like much yet, but we are steadily building the Buffalo Grove truck farming exhibit. We started off on the right foot with the gorgeous vegetable roadside stand that Dick Stone and his grandson constructed. It was the first piece to be installed in the space and we couldn’t be more pleased with it.
Our first big victory came a week ago in getting the stubborn temporary walls upright (and without incident). Since then, our clever student volunteers have started laying flooring and wallpaper for the kitchen and hotel lobby display.
Lately, we are most proud of how the greenhouse corner is taking shape. Many thanks go out to Debbie’s father for bringing us such nice little oak trees for that area. Although there’s much work yet to be done, we remain optimistic about the exhibit and its potential awesomeness.
