Hundreds of volunteers in Delta, B.C. spent Sunday afternoon preserving a piece of agricultural history by participating in an old-fashioned barn raising that put together the Harris Barn that was built in 1900.
Lifetime Delta farmer Jim Harris has been planting peas, beans and potatoes for more than 50 years, but the 73-year-old is excited to go to his first-ever barn-raising this Sunday (Aug. 19).
