Retail Store

Under the guidance of an extremely motivated Board of Directors, parents and a wonderful volunteer Executive Director, we opened a ‘Roots to Wings’ retail store April 22, 2017.  From within this space, our employee’s/’Farmers’ have gained additional personal growth from an array of job opportunities of their choosing.
