NRV MUSHROOM CLUB
ON THE ROAD AGAIN is in Montgomery County meeting up with the New River Valley Mushroom Club. Members of this unique club forage for wild mushrooms for culinary and scientific purposes, and some do it just for fun! See what this club is all about and why fungi is such a necessary element in our ecosystem.

Harmony Farm Animal Sanctuary
ON THE ROAD AGAIN heads to Botetourt County for a visit to Harmony Farm Sanctuary, a sanctuary specifically designed for farm animals that have been abandoned or surrendered by their owners.
Goats, pigs, horses and sheep, are just a few of the breeds that have found a safe and happy life at Harmony Farm. The sanctuary is operated by Angels of Assisi.
