Bothe -Napa Valley & Bale Grist Mill had asked us to help them plant Indian corn by the White Barn in Saint Helena. This corn will be harvested in the Fall. We are hoping to invite the students from our Northwood Elementary School partnership, 4th grade class help with the harvest and tour the Mill.
Today, a group of Auberge Associates and Managers planted twelve, 100-foot long rows of Indian corn and popcorn. We also unrolled irrigation hoses along the planted rows. This was a terrific opportunity for Auberge to get out in the community (and out into the beautiful weather)!
The White Barn
2727 Sulphur Springs Ave.
St. Helena, CA 94574
Known as a unique gem of St. Helena, The White Barn is an 1872 Carriage House that was once part of U.S. Civil War General Erasmus Keyes’ home and winery estate. Located at the end of Sulphur Springs Avenue in a bucolic vineyard setting, The White Barn was transformed into an intimate 75-seat performing arts venue without loss of its historic charm.
Bale Grist Mill
Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park is a California state park located in Napa County between St. Helena and Calistoga. The park is the site of a water-powered grist mill that was built in 1846. It was once the center of social activity as Napa Valley settlers gathered to have their corn and wheat ground into meal or flour. The mill and its 36-foot water wheel are protected as a state historic landmark and have been partially restored. A trail connects the historic park to Bothe-Napa Valley State Park.
