Here is number 11

After writing the Wagner Feed for three years it was an absolute shock when I heard that the blog had recieved the Illinios Parks and Recreation Association's top award for use of electronic media. The blog started out as a way to prattle with the volunteers and friends of the farm who wanted to know more about the day to day happenings. Six hundred some posts later it ends up being a really neat record of the evolution that happens in the life of Wagner Farm. I regret that we didn't start it earlier. It would have been so neat to have captured the beginnings of 4-H, the building of the Heritage Center and the thousands of other milestones big and small that have made the Farm what it is today.
