SUMMER CAMP COMES TO WINDROSE !!!
Last Tuesday we were visited by 58 young campers from the SLO County YMCA. They ranged in age from Kindergarten to 6th grade and everyone was great !! Bill and I gave them a short tour of the farm, helped them plant a cherry tomato to take home and then they visited with the sheep, dogs and Uma the horse. The hits of the day were our Jewel apricots, Uma the horse and being sprayed with the hose to cool off on our hottest day.
