A break in the weather allowed us here at RAIL to escort a faculty and administrative leadership group from James Madison University(JMU) around a local coal community. Together we met with several of our local garden participants, shared stories, and stopped for a sack lunch at the Wyco church.
JMU enjoyed exploring this 100 year-old gothic revival. Our very own, Tim McGraw, even gave the old church bell a ring!
After a pleasant lunch work resumed. We, alongside our guests, were separated into small group according to our assigned jobs. We had teams taking measurements, teams performing soil tests, and teams running plows and tillers.
It was great getting to know our new friends from JMU while also getting to know more about our community!
