New-comers and old-timers alike knew and loved Nola Albert.

She was perpetually curious, consistently generous and unfailingly accepting of folks from all walks of life. And she was ahead of her times, anticipating the ways we need to care for each other by caring for the soil and air made available to us.

Her gift of land upon her passing has offered fertile ground for future farmers. This is a short tribute to her legacy and memory.
