HomeGrown 07/25/10 – Capstone Produce & Monarch Watch

HomeGrown this week takes a good look at a Kentucky auction service selling local farm food in large volumes – and visits with the creators of a national program to serve and protect monarch butterflies. David Neville, owner of Capstone Produce, explains how Kentucky farmers can sell food in large lots to the highest bidder. Bob and Jeneen also visit with a Valparaiso, Indiana parks superintendent who created a two-acre butterfly “way station” in the heart of the city, and take a look at the University of Kansas program that has spawned almost 4,000 such gardens across North America to assist in the monarch migration.
