Gretchen at Enright Ridge Urban Eco-Village
I was overcome with nostalgia visiting Gretchen at Urban Earth Farms. My grandparents grew their first plants from seeds when my Father was a boy. Those first plants grew into a family business that lasted past my childhood until my Grandfather passed away in 2008. This conversation with Gretchen was good for my soul! Urban Earth Farms has a store in the East side where you can buy plants in the Spring and produce in the summer and fall. Their main goal is to provide for their CSA shareholders. We talked about the Green Cincinnati program and how it is helping with the farm and working with the city on other projects. Gretchen shared their plans on providing educational workshops for children to learn how to make healthy but yummy dishes at the farm! How exciting!
