For those just north of Cincinnati, I wanted to give a heads up on some local eating resources that overlap with our area of interest and might be worth checking out:
DaytonLocovore (modeled after CinciLocavore, the Cincinnati Local Foods Groups' free email discussion group) is just starting up. They share resources for local eating in and around the Miami Valley.
Miami Valley Grown, a project of The Ohio State University's Extension Service, connects local growers, farmers, and producers with local buyers. Their site offers a local foods map, a list of local farmers' markets, and other resources. They're also looking for volunteers right now to work on several projects:
- Events and Education
- Institutional Integration (getting local foods into local universities, K-12, grocery stores, etc)
- Kitchen Incubator (establishing a shared-use kitchen for the Miami Valley)
- Local Meats Taskforce
- Publicity and Marketing
