Life at Fern Creek points toward simplicity, community, compassion, justice, gratitude, generosity, hope, humility, openness, faith, and integrity. The concepts hold such lofty and idyllic connotations when stored as words in the mind. But when connected to Willamette Valley dirt, the words become the underpinning for stories. Each shared life experience is a human-interest story. As Mark and Lisa chronicle life at Fern Creek, their convictions and commitments show through. Their narrative is actually about something more than growing produce for community-supported agriculture subscribers, it s about making choices that enhance life.
