On Fertile Ground is a collection of photographs taken in 2007 by Doug Eng in conjunction with the selling of the family farm. Eng spent the month photographing the large barn and adjoining buildings and houses, remembering the times there while growing up. In 2009, Eng hosted an exhibition of photographs made possible by an Art Ventures grant from the Community Foundation of Jacksonville.
