Urban Farming

Nov 9, 2012

Chelsea VandeDrink spends a few minutes with the founder of the Urban Farming organization, Taja Sevelle, who has a local focus on reutilizing rain water by capturing it in 30 barrels purchased through a grant from the Coca-Cola Company, then using that to water the community gardens Urban Farming has around Cincinnati.

Jim's right - this interview was warm and inviting.  An emotion not to distant from our overall experience in Wyoming.  The women in charge of the Wyoming Farmer's Market are not just enthusiastic about food, but the community as well.

One of my favorite neighborhoods to cover was Over the Rhine.  I lived in OTR for 3 and half years and look forward to transplanting my family back downtown.  Every morning on my way to work I would hear laughter coming from Peaslee Neighborhood Center.  It was a joy to revisit this interview.

During Local Exposure's visit through the quaint village of Mariemont we featured the Theater standing in the center of the square.  We asked our movie and film aficionado, Larry Thomas for a brief history and description of this historical landmark in Mariemont.
