The Rising Star interns had a slow start to our week, but we were able to catch up and plan for our upcoming projects. We made a poster about the Rising Star Internship Program to display at the Shelby County Fair this upcoming week and made the salsa for the farmer’s market.
Fair Clean-Up Day
On Thursday, we helped clean up the Shelby County fairgrounds to get ready for the fair next week. 4-H members and Clover kids enjoyed donuts before cleaning and sweeping the buildings. Then they set up booths and stands for their projects. Everyone was such a big help, and we were done before noon!
Harlan’s Farmers Market
Grace and I kicked off our Saturday morning at the farmers market in Harlan. We had an educational booth with samples of Cowboy Caviar with tortilla chips, the recipe for the salsa, and fresh fruit and vegetable guides. The guides had information about which fruits and vegetables are in season each month, their nutritional benefits, and how to properly wash them. It was such a beautiful day, and everyone enjoyed the salsa!
