We’ll introduce you to what is raised and grown in North Carolina, and the farmers that help feed us. We’ll show you what plants are in season and how to get a bumper crop from your home garden. We’ll take you into the kitchen to learn how to safely prepare meals that are healthy and nutritious.
Every month, Homegrown shares new videos featuring tips and tools in three categories:
In the Garden
In The Garden videos help guide green thumbs across North Carolina with timely tips and information on establishing and maintaining gardens, lawns, landscapes and house plants. Join Extension's horticultural experts and Extension Master Gardener volunteers as they share topical features that fit the seasons of North Carolina.
In the Kitchen
In The Kitchen topics focus on safety practices for food preparation and preservation, tips for cooking nutritious and seasonal local foods, and even the occasional “celebrity” chef sharing their favorite N.C. foods and recipes alongside our Extension specialists and county agents.
On the Farm
On The Farm segments introduce N.C. agriculture – our state’s leading economic engine – and the diversity of crops, agricultural practices, and farm operations across the state. We’ll take you on a journey through the life cycle of the foods you love, from the farm to your family’s dinner table, including personal perspectives from those who raise and grow the food we eat and products that impact our daily lives.
