The Dixie Classic Fair - can be Healthy :-)

We took the kids to the Dixie Classic fair today in Winston Salem NC, we had a great day and as a dietitian I was thrilled to have meet some lovely Master Gardeners who are promoting local community gardens and resources through the NC cooperative extension. Here's a wee interview below, but was cut short as our daughter was very keen to go on the rides :-) 

There was also a fun magic show with an agricultural and health education component so Rebecca the dietitian was impressed the fair was more than fried food. Although funnel cakes are good once in a while. I guess you know your a dietitian when the highlight of the fair was the homegrown veggies

Lovely master gardener

North Carolina apples

huge sweet potatoes

  1. That looks like sooooo ... much fun.

  2. Fairs are so much fun. I had to smile. Kids are just like husbands. When they are ready to move on, you have to move on.

    I was with the Master Gardener's program in central Florida years ago. It's a great organization. Here in the mountains the Master Gardener's decorate for Halloween downtown.
