A group of adults with developmental disabilities from Target Community and Educational Services, Inc., stood in a greenhouse picking cherry tomatoes, some popping a few tomatoes in their mouths to eat.
The rule is, they can eat them if they pick them,” said Terry Serio, a food supplement nutrition educator at the University of Maryland Extension, Carroll County Office.

Serio, along with her program assistant and volunteer Master Gardeners, work with groups like the one from Target in the Carroll Outdoor Research and Education Center at the Carroll County extension office.
