With spring officially 10 days away, the Northeast Georgia History Center in Gainesville plans to celebrate the planting season with several family-friendly activities.

During the Family day titled “Food Ways: Plow to Plate,” center officials will cook meals in the cabin and over an outside fire and share traditional recipes. A living history interpretation and other demonstrations will be included. The History Center Staff will hand out samples of open-fire and open-hearth cooking.

Participants also will get busy with hands-on activities such as planting in the garden. Hall County Master Gardeners will be on hand in the Victory Garden to show visitors the crops and offer gardening tips.

The North Georgia Creamery will be set up to dispense dairy knowledge and treats.

The free activity will be from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, March 13, at 322 Academy St. NE in Gainesville.
