When I think about the Farm, I see it alive, giving life and sustaining life. I see a field of crops, rows and rows of vegetables, plants, shrubs I see Hope vale people as Farm supervisors, field workers, researchers I see them smiling, I see people driving past looking at the farm in awe with the array of vegetation. The plants look healthy, a bright lush green I see people looking professional. I see trucks driving in to load up the produce. I see people borrowing the farm machinery to clear a patch on their farm to start something.
I see people busy, I see people content. I see hope.
I see the Farm rebuilding Hope Vale.
