I would like to extend a huge thank you to John Esau, who owns and maintains a beautiful farm in Atwater.
We took a group of our residents to visit his place and were treated to a wonderful outdoor experience.
He has gorgeous gardens, many different types of fruit trees, several fountains, antique farm equipment and fascinating yard art.
He shared delicious fresh peaches, figs and grapes with our lovely residents. He even took them on a tour of his property on a golf cart.
He doesn't accept any money for what he does. Everything he's been working on is especially designed simply for the enjoyment of the seniors in our community.
