man working in hoop houseIn NC, we celebrate small farms! The 32nd Annual Small Farms Week hosted by Cooperative Extension at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is March 25-31. Scholarships are available to farmers to attend.
For the month of March, McDowell County is celebrating small farms with a Backyard Chicken Workshop and a Grower Opportunities Meeting. We are also sponsoring a food drive for McDowell County Public Schools. The schools need “snack items”. Please bring these items to our office. We also hope to have donations boxes in other areas of our community.
Snack Items needed:  cheese crackers, granola bars, oatmeal cereal squares, goldfish crackers, pretzels, popcorn, fruit roll ups, cheez its, apples, oranges, bananas
