Grown and Gathered Heirloom Farm, is a newly formed non-profit to continue farming the land at the Ross A Wagner Historical Center. It will help Sappington-Concord Historical Society preserve the history of the crops and farming methods Ross Wagner and his family used on their farm. It will contrast the historical truck farm with the modern day urban farm. It will provide educational programs and demonstrations relating to farming, gardening, food, health and sustainability.
