Dinner Down on the Farm in Knox County

On Saturday, members of CSA got a farm tour of Melon Acres in Oaktown, including vegetable fields, greenhouses and the watermelon line, all followed by a big dinner. Nearly 400 people came out for the event, and organizers say it's exciting to see how many people their program impacts. All of the money raised at the event's silent auction will benefit the PACE Community Action Agency and the local Head Start Program.
