Farm helps Wolfson Children's Hospital at Baptist Clay

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A local farm is sowing seeds of good will.

Amazing Grace Crop Maze in Green Cove Springs hopes this year's crop will benefit Wolfson Children's Emergency Room at Baptist Clay and in turn,  help a girl recovering from a serious injury.

"We were washing my truck and my kids wanted to help me, so they were in the back washing the back glass, and we had rinsed it off and I was putting the soap and the supplies up," Toby Saine said.

That's when Saine's daughter Kylie fell off the back of the truck. The 5-year-old fell 4 feet, hitting her head on the concrete driveway.

Saine immediately took his daughter to Wolfson Children's Hospital in Clay County.

"All the people that work there were just fantastic -- the doctors, the nurses, the lady that checked us in. Everybody was very concerned with my daughter," Saine said.

That's why a portion of one weekend's sales at the Amazing Grace Crop Maze will go to Wolfson Children's Hospital in Clay County.

To celebrate her recovery and the benefit coming up in the fall, Kylie turned the soil and planted the first seeds.

The Crop Maze will be open Oct. 3, and although it may not feel like fall outside right now, the growers have to lay the seed now so it's ready for fall festivities.

The hospital will have workers on hand while kids enjoy hay rides, exploring the mazes and pumpkin patches.

"Our No. 1 priority is safety, so we are just really excited to have them out here just as an extra precaution," said Kelly Mosley, owner of Amazing Grace Crop Maze.

Future Farmers of America from Oakleaf High School also helped with the planting Friday.
