When starting a project like The Farm there are hundreds of things that I never considered and it has been a learning experience, some times a painful learning experience.  I have remembered why as a child I wanted to get off the farm and out of the nursery business while maintaining 11+ acres of land that we purchased.  

I have a much better understanding of building codes and dealing with the bureaucracy of a small county government.   My heart goes out to the general contractors and the skilled tradesmen that deal with them on a daily basis.  I will never complain about marketing people in the future; I have found a group that is more difficult.

But the primary thing I have learned is how an endeavor like this will build friendships and bring diverse people together when they find a cause that they all support.   I met so many wonderful people that I can not list them all here but there are some special people that I want to recognize not only for what they have done for the project but for their sincerity and friendship.
