We mourn those who have died, and think about their loved ones. We think about those who are struggling with prolonged and serious illnesses from the virus, and with economic stress.
The COVID-19 quarantine has brought shutdown of other outdoor places. So people have been absolutely delighted and really appreciative to discover our oasis. Many comment on the peace and serenity they experience here.
Also, the pandemic is helping more people than ever realize the importance of learning about growing food sustainably, and they are excited to learn how much abundance of beautiful plants we can grow here sustainably.
In the vast majority of cases, people are being respectful and following guidelines.
Many also wanted to help out in the garden once we are more fully open again.
