Realtor Stephanie Slade and the husband-and-wife team of Matthew and Kara Rutter pooled their resources Saturday afternoon in playing host to an afternoon of relaxation and education, with veterans and vets' families in mind. Slade, who is with Meybohm Real Estate, and the Rutters, both of whom are planning to retire from the military this year, offered an open house for Project Victory Gardens, their "veteran-owned farm focused on cultivating resiliency." Chickens, goats, turkeys, ducks, fish and fruit trees were among the creations being promoted in what has been described as "agricultural therapy and animal therapy opportunities for military veterans, active-duty military personnel and others."
