If all goes according to plan, there will be 500 vegetable-producing gardens in Madisonville this spring.
Organizers of the 500 Gardens Project want to make sure nobody has to walk further than their own yard to taste vine-ripened tomatoes, peppers and zucchini. Without a car, many residents cannot get to a grocery store easily.
The goal is that one in ten households plant a garden with the help of volunteers.
Sylvain Archer is the owner of the Madisonville shop French Rendez-Vous during the day, but away from the store he’s an accomplished guitarist. He joins Robyn Carey-Allgeyer to discuss his new, all-French CD with his new group, French Axe, recorded in the Corbett Studio at Cincinnati Public Radio, and featuring other top local musicians Eric Sayer on bass, Rob Allgeyer on Hammond organ and accordion and Mark on drums.
