 especially loved the idea of living on a farm and tending to a warm
 barn, full of cuddly critters. A future, little farm was in my vision for
 as long as I can remember.

 Fast-forward to my first social work job, I worked in a locked and
 gated psychiatric hospital, with severely abused children. I will never
 forget the night when a 9-year-old girl told me that no one would
 know, or care, if she died there. I reassured her that I cared, yet this
 was not enough. I decided to plant a strawberry patch with the chil-
 dren. We found a spot on the hospital grounds and each child plant-

 With time and patience, the seeds grew into beautiful strawberries. I
 was able to remind the little girl the strawberries cared. She soon                                                        savannah eberline

 The time I spent working with the children at the hospital planted a
 dream in my heart. I realized I needed to create a way for children
 to connect with the earth. My vision of a little farm was transform-
