EASTERN NC becoming a

EASTERN NC becoming a desert oasis and tropical paradise We do seem to have it all in our area. Amazingly, we have the climate to sustain exotic plants from the desert and the rain forest. Eddie Walker has built a business very unique, entrepreneurial, and fascinating for the public. Located off Hwy. 343 on Nosay Road in Camden County. Walker’s Palms imports and grows exotic trees, plants, shrubs, and grasses to landscape and decorate your property with unique and colorful choices. Many of us are familiar with bamboo; he has five choices. We can all recognize a generic cactus, but shapes, colors and blooms vary greatly. Do not worry Eddie can teach you how to plant, care for, and propagate the Yucca Rostrata or maybe a Rainbow Cactus. Cacti and Agaves are succulents (hold water) making them survival plants. The medicinal qualities of Aloe Vera offer intriguing remedies to your skin and surface lesions. Some flowers are even edible. Ask Eddie how to grow a banana tree. The website gives a wealth of knowledge and pictures to help make your decisions easier. But there is nothing like an on-site visit to the beautiful property at Walker’s Palms. Groomed with Bermuda grass, the main house stands proudly before a side and back yard created with loving genius by the family of wife Carmen, son Gabe, and Eddie. Walk around the aerated pond and pass by their Koi Pond, no time to lounge in the shaded hammock as you trek past the waterfall toward the outdoor lounge area adjacent to the a canopied grill. The tour of the hot house, nursery, and informative tutorial helps one envision your own home project. You realize this is an upgrade of function, beauty, and investment. The imagination of exotic vacations can realistically become part of your home or vacation property. What an incredible revelation to learn how functional and sustainable these exotic additions can be to our geographic area.

Does God take the summer off? by Pastor Dan Bergey Wow, summer once again has flown by. To some the new school year is exciting, to others there maybe be fear and discouragement. Each year many students go to their first day of school without the necessary items for effective learning. Teachers try their best to work with the resources they have. While opinions vary as to why this happens, so often these opinions bring conversations, even arguments, and lead to few solutions and actions. There are individuals who are desiring to make a difference in Currituck County Schools. My prayer is that as you read this, you will begin to ask the question how can I serve and help. In Currituck County there is a School Ministerial Council. People from different Churches who come together to serve and meet the needs that are in our Schools. So here is how you can serve. FIRST PRAY, daily pray for students, teachers and staff. Second find out if your Church is involved, and have adopted a school to serve. Third, if you are a part of a community organization or business, will you partner with us? Call our office 252-453- 2773 and we will put you in contact with the Church that has adopted the school you wish to help. Fourth, communicate the need to anyone who will listen, because together we can make a difference. We here at New Life of Currituck are partnering with Jarvisburg Church of Christ and have formed a “God cares, We care” initiative for the High School and Middle School in Barco. We have a calendar of events and projects to help and encourage students and staff. We would love to share them with you, and enjoy your help in making our School system healthy and productive. Every dollar, every item donated goes to help our children, students, and encourage our neighbor, teachers and staff.
