Spring is here, and that means the Family Nurturing Center of Medford’s Farm and Food Program is gearing up for another season of growing healthful food for local families.
The program operates from historic Hanley Farm in Central Point to offer parents connected to the FNC and their young children an opportunity to help grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, berries and fruits using organic practices, and then to prepare and enjoy field-fresh, wholesome meals together.
