On Saturday, August 20th Buncombe County 4-H partnered with Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) to provide support for the “Kids Corner Market” at the Asheville City Market. The “Kids Corner Market” serves hundreds of children and families during the summer by helping to promote local farms. Buncombe County 4-H hosted the “Garden in a Glove” activity where children and parents planted a vegetable garden consisting of swiss chard, spinach, beets, carrots, and snow peas in a glove.
They took their gloves home, put them in the warm sunlight, and watched their seeds germinate.
In addition to planting their “Garden in a Glove”, families also learned about the Buncombe County Cooperative Extension Service and opportunities to become involved with 4-H. We want to thank ASAP for inviting our 4-H program to be involved in this event and hope to do it again next summer!
