KAXE Programs - Local Foods

Wednesdays at 7:20am
People have become more and more interested in where their food comes from.  For many years, KAXE's General manager has not only been paying attention to what she eats and where it comes from she's been having conversations with the people who produce it.  For several years, Jane Grimsbo-Jewett from the University of Minnesota, Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (MISA) and owner of Willow Sedge Farm in Palisade has helped KAXE produce the local food program.
Some producers allow community members to invest in their farms through Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs). In payment for this investment they receive shares of the food that the farm produces.
Other people are involved in local farm markets or help organize sustainable agriculture events and training sessions. They work in schools and food co-ops. Some are involved in food sovereignty groups. Others are trying to find ways to process local food so people can use it more easily.
They have wonderful stories to tell, about the land, their families, animals and plants. Many are highly inventive and entrepreneurial. All of them work very hard.
