Down South

Vance and Brenda Barritt are working on a new venture, Earth Works Farm. And like any new venture, it comes with some big hopes and dreams, in this case centred around sustainability, the land and water, and community. “I can help – I want to preserve what is original and make better what is not; help trees and grasses of all sorts hold back the soil and wind, keeping the moisture from sinking through the sand; feeding the birds and the bees and the pigs and the chickens; feeding the cows and the geese and us.”
