Other local markets

For those of you near Cuyahoga Valley National Park, or who might be visiting the area this year, check out this information about the farms inside the park http://www.earthwatchohio.org/pubs/aprmay08/restoringfarms.htm. One thing that is unique about national parks East of the Mississippi is that they usually were acquired and parceled together after settlement. CVNP offers a great variety of programming more associated with inhabited areas. Don't get me wrong, I love the more secluded parks too, but a national park in such a populated area can provide some programming advantages, and one is apparently a focus on local food production.

Next time I'll have some information from a show called "Around Noon" from Cleveland's public radio. They had a special on local foods yesterday, and I even got to call in and talk to them about Locavore Nation and my troubles finding accessible produce. They gave me some recommendations, and I'm slowly looking through them. I'll let you know what I find next week.
