McCoy was honored to have Jake do his Eagle Scout project on the farm. He made a beautiful fire pit that will make a lasting impression on this community. We are proud to be a part of his ending journey with the Boy Scouts and grateful for his contributions to McCoy Farm and Gardens. Thank you Jake!
A Monarch Way Station is being planted thanks to the Tucker Foundation and its president, Andy Cope. If you enjoy gardening and good company, please consider volunteering your gardening skills and come help Hamilton County Master Gardeners (each Friday in May, from 9 until 12) with this exciting endeavor. If you have any questions please call 645-6268.
The McCoy Farm and Gardens was pleased to have some very lovely young ladies and handsome gentlemen on its grounds dressed in prom finery this past Saturday for pre-event photographs. Congratulations and best wishes to all!
Eagle Scout, Taylor Bowling, has left a lasting mark on McCoy Farm. For his service project, Taylor made 3 beautiful benches and on December 5, installed them on the McCoy property.
The photo below is of Walden Mayor Bill Trohanis thanking and congratulating Taylor on a well done project while they tried out one of the new benches
Sadly, not too long ago Taylor was told that he and his family would be moving from Signal Mountain. Taylor decided that before he left, he would do his Eagle Scout Project here on the mountain to give back to the community in which he was raised.
We are grateful to you, Taylor. You and your family will be missed and we wish you the very best!
