This week on Watershed Wednesday (9/8/10) at 1 p.m., we're celebrating the abundance of our local bounty. "The Powerhouse Ladies of Local Food" will share their views and experiences with locally produced food. Not only do these ladies grow great tasting food, these Shapers of the Local Food Movement know how to get things done, be it setting up a canning workshop, teaching others to cook, or gathering farmers around raising beef. My guests this week are:
- Challey Comer, Farm to Market Manager at the Watershed Agricultural Council and coordinator of the Pure Catskills Buy Local campaign;
- Denise Warren, farmer-chef-blogger at Stone & Thistle Farm and Fable restaurant in East Meredith. Her latest venture in bringing whole food to the home dinner table is a workshop, "Lamb to Plate";
- Diane Francis, farmer-entrepreneur-B&B hostess at La Basse Cour Farm in South Kortright. She spearheaded the formation of two farmers' markets in our area, Hobart and Headwaters (Stamford).
Join us for an hour of talk about local harvests, September's local food happpenings, what's going on to connect you to it, and how you can get involved with our Local Food Movement.
Find it on Watershed Wednesday at 1 p.m. on WIOX Community Radio 91.3FM.
