In the spring we purchase approximately 100 chicks to raise in the brooding house. Most grow to about 8-10 pounds. We also raise pheasants and release them into the wild once they mature.
If gardening is your thing then this is a great place to check out, our residents have approximately 6 gardens that they attend to. Several of our residents start their seeds early in one of our sun drenched rooms. As you can see they have a great start prior to planting which allows for some very abundant harvests at the Center.
Do you enjoy food? Well you won't be disappointed here. We serve 3 meals per day and 2 snacks. We have phenomenal cooks that create amazing meals at the Center and even our salad bar is fantastic.
When the weather turns nice we like to frequent Itasca State Park and spend the day floating on the pontoon, fishing or just seeing the sights. Itasca is one of the most beautiful state parks Minnesota has to offer and we are very fortunate to have such an amazing resource so close to the Center.
Some of our residents like to unwind in the game room with a friendly game of pool or foosball. Others just enjoy a good work out in our weight room, on the treadmill or pedaling away on a stationary bike. If the indoor activity isn't for you check out the basketball hoop or take a scenic walk on our trails.
We also have a small library that is filled with books, games, and videos. If our library doesn't have what you are looking for we take regular trips to town which includes stops at the public library, bank and stores for shopping.
