Pledge Allegiance to Local Food!
Local Food Pledge
Local Food is food produced within the "local foodshed' in the Central Ohio River Valley Watershed within 100 miles of Cincinnati.   
Making a 10% shift in buying or producing local food does not mean all of your food has to be local. It just means shifting what you currently eat to include 10% more locally grown and/or produced food.

If 10% of the regional population takes the pledge it will result in over $49,000,000 infused into the local economy and 544 local jobs!  Plus, it's better for the environment and a healthier option.

Gretchen hit the waves.  The WNKU airwaves that is on September 13th, but should air on September 24th. 

More big news from Greensleeves Farm.  Because of their growing reputation as a CSA and COMMUNITY farm, the Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture will be visiting Greensleeves on Friday October 5!  Gretchen said, "You could have knocked me over with a feather, except I was harvesting pole beans and held onto the trellis!"  The commissioner will visit Stonebrook Winery first, come to Greensleeves, then to the Woolfest.  So, Gretchen is asking you to please look at your schedules and see if you are able to come help at the farm that Friday morning, to demonstrate that YOU are people that believe in what they are doing, growing great fresh food and educating others, and are willing to work hard to make it happen!
