Kansas RV Park Owner Goes ‘Green’ for Guests
Mary Arlington, left, owner of High Plains Camping in Oakley, Kan., has come up with a unique way to differentiate her RV park from any other, according to TheExaminer.com.
This year Arlington has created and planted a garden, where the produce is produced for her guests. Here are quotes from her blog:
Organic produce. Vegetables and fruits for your meal. Stay at High Plains Camping this summer or fall and pick from the garden. The campground owner has a farmer friend who will plant this garden for the guests at the RV park. He loves farming and hopes the guests will appreciate his produce. This is the first year so we’ll learn as we go with this program. We’ll provide 2 pots where people can donate to show their appreciation to David The Farmer. There will be large variety of produce. As the plants are planted I’ll update this posting to give you the full list.
