July is Parks and Recreation Month. We are celebrating by highlighting individuals at the heart of our Parks and Recreation Department.

Meet Pam O’Hearn:
🌺 Pam is a Customer Service Attendant at Russell Farm Art Center.
🌺 She has worked with us for one year.
🌺 If you have had a rental or registered for a class, you probably worked with Pam. She teaches our Junior Master Gardener classes and assists in taking care of our chickens, donkeys, and works outside to maintain the beauty of our flowers and Community Garden.
🌺 Pam is a Johnson County Master Gardener and shares her knowledge of gardening with the staff and visitors.
🌺 She and her husband relocated from California to Burleson three years ago. We are sure glad she did and we appreciate her positive attitude every day!

We appreciate you, Pam, and the service you provide to this community. Thank you for the positive impact you've made in the lives of many.

Such an exciting time in the Russell Farm Community Gardens! A couple of our families are on vacation, they told us we could donate their vegetables along with ours to the local food banks! Last week we harvested 102 cucumbers! We counted 14 cantaloupes on the vines this morning! I hope you are having great success with your garden at home!

Potatoes planted in late February by our Story Time friends, we had some visitors this week so we let them dig them out of the dirt and take some home to cook. One of our families had fun gathering carrots, tomatoes, squash and onions. What a fun week of harvesting vegetables at Russell Farm!!
