2nd Annual Home Grown Gaston Event - Only 8 Days Left

"Home Grown Gaston" is Cooperative Extension’s celebration of Local Foods and Local Causes. This second annual event will be held at the Gastonia Farmer’s Market on May 22nd, 2012 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event will showcase delicious foods grown and prepared in the Gaston County area. Festival attendees will also enjoy live music and have the opportunity to converse with the farmers and chefs who prepared the foods.

This annual event brings visibility to Gaston County’s local foods economy while raising funds for a great local cause.  Cooperative Extension has selected The Shelter of Gaston County as our 2012 partner. The Shelter of Gaston County fills a critical need in our community by providing a safe emergency residence where victims of domestic violence can seek shelter when faced with violent and dangerous situations.
