Support Your Local Growers!

Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson extension and Making It Grow. This is a terrific time to show your support for Certified South Carolina foods and the farmers who grow those local,  crops. If you search SC Department of Agriculture Certified grown, you can find by county all the members of that organization and what items they grow. Some growers even offer a way to support their farm through a CSA or community supported agriculture program. Consumers make an agreement with the farm to participate at a certain level and in return  receive a weekly  or box of vegetables, fruits  or even baked goods straight from the farm. One farm we visited lately even drops off at the fitness center --- exercise and fresh food all in one stop.  It’s great fun – sometimes you’ll get a new item and have to look for a recipe and your family will end up with a tasty surprise.
