Ag and Art

Making It Grow logo

Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Clemson Agribusiness Agent Ben Boyers and his partner Strauss Shiple of the Old English District Tourism Commission have exciting events planned in ten South Carolina counties for each of the five weekends that we have coming up in June., Ag and Art Tours. Here is a quote from their website: The South Carolina Ag + Art Tour is a free, self-guided tour of farms and markets featuring local artisans at every stop! During the tour visitors have the opportunity to see first-hand where their food comes from, watch artists in action and purchase their works, enjoy the melodies of local musicians, and learn more about rural life. We’re a small state but this is the largest farm and art tour in the nation- check it out. Making It Grow visited one site, Quite Content Farm, where Stefanie Tetterton gave me purple cauliflower for my hat.

She studied horticulture at Clemson University as a non-traditional student. “I’m so fortunate that my early attempts at getting a degree got side tracked as I’m a lot better at getting dirty in the garden than practicing diplomacy!” McNulty also studied at South Carolina State University and earned a graduate degree in teaching there.
