This photo was taken at Spring Valley EcoFarms in Athens, Ga. The photo shows the front of a hoop house that survived a severe thunder- and wind-storm in 2011. The frame of the hoop house, as well as all of the delicate young plants inside, were destroyed. However, on this day, when the sun was shining through, there was a lot of hope on the professor’s farm about getting things re-built – creative destruction.
