In spite of the Monday afternoon, July 20, 2015 heat in the mid-90s with an even higher heat index, Kiara Traboulsi of Raleigh came to the aid of Raleigh City Garden principal farmer Sean Barker to help him pick as many tomatoes from the Raleigh City Garden's 200 tomato plants before they burst from Sunday's late rains. Traboulsi, who works at Old Milburnie Farm in north Raleigh used her outer tshirt as a makeshift apron to hold as many tomatoes as she could before leaving the long rows to put them in collection boxes. Raleigh City Farm, at the corner of North Blount and East Franklin Streets in downtown Raleigh is a community supported urban farm and food hub founded in 2011, supporting new farm entrepreneurs.
