Dr. Steve Bain connects with lineage during Mint Hill visit

By Leah Schmalz

When Dr. Steve Bain, a professor at Texas A&M, began researching his family lineage, he never imagined it would take him to Mint Hill. The link extends back to Bain’s great-great-great grandfather, who was John Bain’s uncle.

Bain received a gracious welcome last Thursday at Philadelphia Presbyterian Church, where some of his ancestors are buried. Mayor Ted Biggers presented him with several mementos from the town, including several pins and an ornament of the town hall. “We were quite excited when we heard we had a namesake from the Bain family coming,” said Biggers. ““This is about…meeting the community and connecting so when people come here they don’t have to have the last name Bain to feel welcome.”  […]

Kids love to play in the dirt.

Kids also love pizza.

Organizers of a local gardening project are banking on this combination to give kids an opportunity to grow their own vegetables and herbs to make a pizza.

Fuel Pizza Café of Charlotte has partnered with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), the Mecklenburg County Health Department, Mecklenburg County Fruit and Vegetable Coalition, and LandSculptors, LLC to bring “Field to Fork” Pizza Gardens to fifteen elementary schools, including Bain Elementary School in Mint Hill.

Working with their teachers, selected students will plan, grow, and harvest their own vegetable garden. After harvesting the produce, they will take a field trip to FUEL Pizza where they will be taught how to use their own vegetables to make whole wheat vegetarian pizza.

The idea behind the project is to get children excited about eating vegetables they wouldn’t normally eat by fostering a personal connection to the gardens they tend. […]
