Episode #1172 - July 22nd, 2021
Water is such an important natural resource. And in an area like North Webster where lakes are all over the place, it’s a vital part of life. There are more and more CSA farms in our area where people can partner with farmers to buy a share of the harvest at the beginning of the season and get the returns throughout the summer. One of the fastest growing alternative energy sources is solar, and AEP and Notre Dame has partnered to develop a solar farm near the toll road in Granger.

    There are more and more CSA farms in our area where people can partner with farmers to buy a share of the harvest at the beginning of the season and get the returns throughout the summer. But Singletree Farm is a little different CSA because they are a flower farm. They deliver beautiful bouquets throughout the growing season for pickup at the Goshen Farmers Market. Krista Bailey gets a tour of the farm from owners Kate and Scott to see how this is a sustainable practice.
