A new community in Cypress Pond is having its grand opening this weekend.
The Albany organization used money from a class action farming settlement to purchase approximately 1,700 acres, now called RESORA.
Now they are using the land as a way to give back to the community. They said they want people of all backgrounds to come and interact with each other.
The land is broken up into 3 areas: The Village, The Farm and The Preserve.
The Farm will be used to research and grow pecans and other vegetables. The village is where the main house is, and the preserve is a wooded area on the property.
Everyone is invited to visit the property on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for an opening ceremony, multicultural event, and a "Taste of RESORA."
