Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority Grants $10,000

The Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority has recently granted seed capital in the amount of $10,000 to Deana Haines of Duffield. Having begun her farming career when she was a child, Haines plans to include a variety of culinary herbs, flowers, strawberries and vegetables which will then be grown to varying sizes for eventual sale at local farmer’s markets and wholesaled to area farm and garden stores, including health stores.

Her future plans include the installation of a hydroponic system in the green house which would allow year round production of strawberries as the only crop. A second greenhouse is also in the planned future, which would be used for produce and herbs.
