Harvest Party Time in Gaston County

Harvest Parties began in Gaston County this Monday. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be harvesting the gardens and making salads with 26 classes of third graders at 9 elementary schools who participate in the Healthy Harvest program offered through Gaston County Cooperative Extension. The vegetables for these gorgeous salads were planted, tended, harvested, prepared and finally eaten by the kids themselves, and the dressing was made using the ever-popular blender bike.
