Our mission is to educate people, connect eaters and growers, and promote a vibrant, ecologically friendly, and sustainable local food economy in the Central Ohio River Valley.

History

At a fall 2007 gathering at Imago Earth Center, a group of individuals concerned about the environment met to discuss local food resources. Several of these eaters of local foods saw the need for an all inclusive directory of resources. This desire brought community members, farmers and staff from local non-profits together to produce the 2008 Eat Local guide. A second edition was completed in the spring of 2009.  Imago, a nonprofit, mentors and financially houses the initiative.
