Tending God's green acres

Great article from The Columbus Dispatch on our friends at Shepherd's Corner! It starts like this:

Shepherd's Corner at Dominican Acres sticks out like a green thumb among the subdivisions and shopping centers that surround it.

The 160-acre organic farm in Jefferson Township west of Waggoner Road is run by the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Spring, a Roman Catholic community. It is home to turkeys, chickens, sheep and a llama as well as hay fields and vegetable gardens.

Today is the farm's 10th annual Neighbors' Day open house. Ten years ago, residents of the newly built developments around Shepherd's Corner were curious about the farm. The event started as a chance to show off the farm to the new neighbors, said Melissa Camp, director of Shepherd's Corner.
