Antique Tractors Pass the PGT

The big excitement here in the country today was the trail of old tractors winding their way up the road from New Bloomfield on the first of two rides totaling 20 miles. old tractorWe (Joan and Lorna Domke and Will Marshall) sat and waved as some of the 100 or so registered passed by. The purpose of it was a fundraiser for the Callaway County Historical Society. They had noted historical locations along the way, including the Caldwell pottery which had been active between 1826-70 or so on our land as well as the Newsom farm (where Celia, a slave, killed Robert Newsom in the 1800s) which is down the road on Forest Service land I believe.


About Lorna Domke

Since 1981, I've lived on the land that surrounds, and will eventually be integrated into, the Prairie Garden Trust with my husband, Henry. Our long-term goal is to build on what Henry's parents began and create a nature garden of sorts for others to enjoy. Over the years I've planted prairie, mowed trails, created a website and done whatever I could to enhance what's here. For a few years I served on the board of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Since I retired from my role as Outreach & Education Division Chief at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation in 2010, I've started to put more time into the PGT. The PGT Nature Garden blog is one result.
