Food From Here invites growers, producers & purveyors of the food we eat in our region of the Midwest to share their stories and their recipes as we discuss what makes food from here distinctly ours. Host Peggy Pirro talk with chefs, farmers, brewers, food truck owners, and home gardeners about our surprisingly vibrant local food community.
In this first episode we set the table for a season of conversations about Food From Here with some thoughts on our relationship with the land – which is arguably the starting point of every food story we tell. Joining host Peggy Pirro is Sustainable Living educator Amy Rhodes, founder of Listen to the Land, an organization whose mission includes teaching the importance of local food networks. Amy is currently the Sustainable Living Program manager at Seton Harvest, a CSA farm in Evansville, Indiana, that brings the principles of caretaking and ecological stewardship into daily practice.
