Local foods movement grows

(Continued)

Organic gardeners Paul and Lisa Hines, Sunman, desire more local foods and alternatives to grocery stores. “We shop at Trader Joe’s and Costco, but we don’t think that’s any sort of solution.”

Neil Long, Milan, a new MMH oncology nurse, observed, “It doesn’t make sense to me that we’re not helping people live different lifestyles ... We grow most of our own food, but my interest is growing food for others.” With a family of nine, “I’ve got an army of children and they’re just raring to get at the ground!”

Nurse Karen Lanning Batesville, is interested in eating healthier and wants to understand foraging. In a greenhouse, she would like to grow avocado, olive and lemon trees “just to see if we can. I’d love to know if anybody cans goetta?”

University of Cincinnati grad Kelly Hamm is relieved to be back living in Batesville, where local foods are more plentiful. “Every opportunity I have I’m in the garden,” which contains a peach tree and raspberry bushes.

Core group member Erik Tuveson, Batesville, a father of six, “wants to get back to the land” after working in business. “I’m having a lot of fun and really trying to figure out what I’m doing” with new raspberry and blackberry plants. “One of the fundamental problems we have in the community is consistency of access. The farmers’ market is great,” but not always open.

MMH employee Ashley Morris, Greensburg, wants her children and others to learn “the value of local foods.”

Sarah Batta, Sunman, reported, “I love the farmers’ market. I love to cook. My husband’s family runs a dairy farm in Sunman” and are looking into raising heritage beef. “My husband (Brian) is big into beekeeping!”

Erin Temple, Batesville, admitted, “It is overwhelming finding close sources (of local foods) to feed your family.” Brooke Maple, Batesville, added it is difficult “to make sure they (two kids) are eating real food and not McDonald’s. You don’t have time to drive to Cincinnati or Indianapolis to try and eat right.”
