Celebrating The Winter Season Inside and Out
Allen is knee deep in snow at the Garden Home Retreat! He wanders around the farm to show us the different structures of the garden and we check to see how the chickens are coping with all of the powdery white snow. Allen also demonstrates an easy way to decorate inside with Clementines. Special guests talk to Allen about Rumford fireboxes and test the house for energy efficiency. Plus, we'll learn about the advantages of using a real Christmas tree vs. an artificial tree.
