Today was an emotional day here on the farm. We said farewell to Barbara Hittle, who retired today after more than 44 years of working with adults with developmental disabilities. For almost 30 of those years she has worked as a job coach with the ARC of Montgomery County and 14 of those she spent with Red Wiggler as a job coach and farm enthusiast extraordinaire. We will miss her and her indomitable spirit, incomparable sense of humor, and generous heart. We wish her the best as she heads west to run her own farm and be close to her family. We know that she won’t have a quiet retirement, but we wish her a happy one, filled with quilts, chickens, and many, many projects. Thank you, Barbara for all you’ve done!
