Greetings Kickstarter backers-

From Zero to Food in 12 months: We are reflecting on a successful first year, and feeling gratitude as we continue to harvest vegetables from our market garden. We're currently harvesting and selling beets, beans, parsnips, leeks, and sweet potatoes, and we're sharing tomatoes, squash, and beans with our neighbors. Find our produce as part of the Louisville Grows Urban Growers Cooperative, and at the Root Cellar, 954 E Kentucky St.

Fall Foraging  is our final workshop - if you chose this as your Kickstarter reward, we look forward to seeing you there (watch for a reminder) ! All others are welcome- find details and registration here: http://www.louisvillelotsoffood.com/whats-new.html 

Fall Foraging: Where to find, and how to use, Kentucky's fall fruits, nuts, and other wild plants. We'll practice processing and taste some wild treats such as persimmons, walnuts, chicory, sumac, and other surprises. Sunday October 12, 2-4pm 1645 Portland Ave, Louisville. Sliding scale $10-$25

Media:

We've gotten some great media exposure this year, and we're thrilled that we have inspired others to investigate and obtain vacant land in Louisville for growing food! Hooray! The latest place we were excited to be featured was a spread in Grist magazine featuring sustainable agriculture projects in 50 states. We've got a link here to our story and 49 others - http://www.louisvillelotsoffood.com/media.html

With gratitude,

Amanda and Peter
