A tale of two amazing folks who go against the grain and follow their hearts versus just their head.

You are leading a comfortable life in Oakland with a beautiful family beginnings and then one day you discover a dilapidated vineyard with vandalized buildings in a struggling community of 817 folks in rural Hopland, California. At that moment, this family decided to get uncomfortable.

Anna, a leadership development coach and Gary, a property developer knew that life could be reclaimed here, both for Hopland and for themselves. Life and care was needed and thus began the journey of beginning again.

It has been a journey of ups and downs with trying moments that test even the strongest of souls. A journey of growth, learning, discovery and doing.
