    Wilbur, the Farm’s boar, has a brand new home in Deer Hollow Farm’s upper pasture thanks to Akhil Palla’s Eagle Scout project to build a new enclosure for him.

    Wilbur is thrilled with his new home. Thank you Akhil for working so hard to make this project come to life!

    Friends of Deer Hollow Farms funded part of Akhil’s materials for this project, which was coordinated with Farm Staff and Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District. This project is part of Friends’ Youth Volunteer Project Program, where volunteer youths from organizations like the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts plan, organize, fund-raise, and execute Farm improvement projects under the guidance of Farm and Midpeninsula Regional Open Space staff.

    Friends provides funding for these types of projects. Interested youth can contact Friends at info@deerhollowfarmfriends.org for more information.
