Thanks to the expert services of Tommy's Tree Service, this tree is being
removed safely. The March windstorm that hit our area has had Tommy and
his team of professionals working around the clock with emergency calls for
assistance in removing downed trees. There's no tree issue too big or small
for this Culpeper-based business, which has served all of Northern Virginia
and beyond for more than three decades. The seeds of Tommy's story are
planted on the front page.

As one of their cornerstone community
projects, the Francis Fauquier Garden
Club has maintained fi ve raised garden
beds at Fauquier Hospital, growing
a variety of organic vegetables,
including lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini,
and herbs.
All these
are used by
chefs at the
h o s p i t a l 's
Bistro on the Hill, as well
as for children's cooking
Originally installed by
the hospital, the Garden
Club now does all maintenance and
planting work to sustain the raised
beds, which by their nature of being
off the ground helps deter animal
damage. "Installing a raised garden
bed is quite easy," explains Garden
Club member Susan Rubin. "Simply
build a box with some quality railroad
ties and then fi ll it with organic soil."

An annual garden clean-up and
planting day is coordinated each
May by the Garden Club. "These
gardens are a wonderful addition to
the hospital landscaping,"
Susan explains. "Not
only do they beautify the
grounds, but the gardens
also provide healthy
produce to
the hospital."
