Cowan Community Action Group Grow Appalachia hosted our fourth annual Plant and Seed Swap at CANE Kitchen on April 7th. It has become a tradition the community looks forward to and gets the garden season kicked off. We had a good number of vendors including Bill Best, some of our local growers and vendors from Pike and Boyd also. Grow Appalachia participants were given $10 in tokens to purchase plants and seeds with and were also given a free bag of corn. We had live music playing by John Haywood and delicious Italian buffet for the community provided by CANE Kitchen.


We have been digging in to get our growers ready for this garden season. With the help of two of our Grow Appalachia participants we have been able to get 20 gardens plowed.
