With summer around the corner, the spring season is when plants bloom, crops renew and land redevelops to take on the new harvest. The Boundary is home to some of the freshest and most renewable agriculture, and with such amazing crops comes great history.

The Boundary is home to many museums stretching along the region, but people have come to realize that the entire Boundary region is one big museum. Greenwood is one such landmark. If you follow the KVR rail trail, you’ll come across old mines and slag piles from the 1900s. The Visitor Center doubles as a museum where you can discover Japanese internment history, and food culture, like handmade sushi magnets in the gift shop.

In addition to restaurants and food trucks, The Boundary is home to farmers and land curators who feed the region. With every peach and plum, they keep local produce within the community. People gravitate to support local businesses and uplift the region.

A wide variety of businesses in the Boundary utilize local produce to create heartwarming meals for the local citizens. During events, people love to display their artisanal craft for food production. The Rock Creek Fall Fair is a unique opportunity to learn more about the day-to-day lives of our farmers and food producers.
