Greening My Plate Week April 27th – May 4th

It’s time to celebrate spring and our growing season during Greening My Plate week, leading up to the opening day of the Watauga County Farmers’ market on May 3rd. Over a dozen community events will take place from April 27th – May 4th, including a farm tour with greens being harvested by high school students, a greens culinary contest and tasting at the high school, film viewings, educational workshops, children’s book readings and activities, and even county and town proclamations for Greening My Plate Week.  Events have been organized by a coalition of non-profits and individuals, the Greening My Plate Gang. This coalition is dedicated to improving the economic and personal health of our community by encouraging the consumption of fresh, locally produced food.
