Interesting Local History: About the Human Kindness Foundation (previous operators of the blueberry patch outside Hillsborough)  If you wish to continue supporting the work of Human Kindness Foundation, please visit their website catalog to see the books, CDs, tapes, videos, t-shirts, stained glass, artwork and other items they sell to support the Foundation.  If you aren't familiar with the Human Kindness Foundation or its founder, spiritual teacher Bo Lozoff, take a look at the their website.  Children's icon Fred Rogers (of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood fame) was greatly impressed with Foundation founder Bo Lozoff, and in speeches Fred Rogers often named among his heroes Ghandi and Bo Lozoff.  When he passed away in February 2003, Rogers left a sizeable bequest to Mr. Lozoff in his will in support of the Foundation's work.  The Dalai Lama also is an admirer of Mr. Lozoff, and wrote the foreword to Mr. Lozoff's book, It's a Meaningful Life: It Just Takes Practice (Viking).  Of Mr. Lozoff's book, the Dalai Lama said, ""Anyone of any faith, or none, can benefit from the universal ideas and realistic advice in this book."

Berry Picking Tips:  Don't pick your berries into a deep container, as the weight of the berries on top could damage the berries underneath.  It's a good idea to pick your berries into low-sided containers or fill lots of small containers.

Berry Handling Tips:  Always handle berries very gently, keep them dry and refrigerate them, and don't wash them until you are ready to use them.  (Wash gently!)  If you have some mushed/wet berries among your fresh-picked berries, pick them out as they can cause the other berries to go bad quickly.  Also, do not wash berries before freezing them; instead, freeze them straight from picking, and then wash them only after thawing, right before you use them. 

NC Farm Trivia:  April/May is the beginning of the season for North Carolina strawberries, peaches, cabbage, greens, snap beans, and sweet potatoes.  In the Chapel Hill area, the season for blueberries typically begins in July (this year, probably mid-July).

The first feeling you are likely to experience at Raven Rock is one of renewal. Here, the forest reigns as each year the timeless cycle of growth further heals age-old wounds inflicted by man. Nature triumphs as plants compete in the stages of forest succession and the woodlands are restored. High above the Cape Fear River stands Raven Rock, its austere beauty a testament to the forces that have shaped the land. As the river below rushes to join the sea, nature's elements continue to shape the surface of this natural monument.  Spend some time at Raven Rock State Park and let nature refresh your spirit."
