Salmander Springs Farm Hosts Homestead Tour

A guided tour of Salamander Springs Farm, a 50-acre homestead owned by Debby Waugh will take place February 25 at 10:30 a.m. Waugh will conduct the tour.

The homestead has been in development 15 years, since Waugh first bought the land, a Davis Farms news release says.

The entire homestead is an "off the grid" homestead, using solar power and conservation techniques to reduce the footprint of the homestead. Debby is a Certified Permaculturist, and has hosted over 300 volunteers since she first started.

Carpools from Roberta and Macon will be organized.

If you plan on attending and are interested in carpooling e-mail Naomi at davisfarmssa@aol.com with your location and if you are willing to use your vehicle and how many it will hold.
