All the produce in the meal was grown in the Linwood Community Garden.

Sharp, and the sounds of Snowshoe native Shawn Owen mixing original tunes with some 90s hits.\r\n\r\nThe meal included an array of dishes made with vegetables from the Linwood Community Garden, located on land graciously leased to the Linwood Alive! non-profit by Harvey Galford.\r\n\r\n[caption id="attachment_21948" align="alignleft" width="400"]<img src="https:\/\/pocahontastimes.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/sites\/25\/2018\/08\/Farm-to-Fork-2.jpg" alt="" width="400" height="600" class="size-full wp-image-21948" \/> An arrangement of vibrant wildlfowers grown by Tolly Peuleche.

People of all ages are welcome to show off their talents and compete for the chance to win first, second or third place in the adult and children\u2019s categories.
