If you were a Cub Scout, you probably participated in the Pinewood Derby. Well, last Thursday N.C. State’s Plants for Human Health Institute and the N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Program for Value-Added and Alternative Agriculture held the Zucchini 500 at the North Carolina Research Campus Farmers Market in Kannapolis. It’s kind of like the Pinewood Derby, but instead of creating a car from a block of wood, contestants use a zucchini.
