  • 2014 at a glance

    Here is a little something Sandra put together with pictures on her phone. The song "We Will All Be Changed" is by one of her favorite bands, Seryn from Denton, Texas. The lyrics and the images say it all. Thank you for making 2014 such a full year at The Locals.

  • Moving Forward With a New Look.

    As The Locals moves forward with our newest projects, we are excited to do so with an updated logo. We are thrilled to unveil our logo for The Locals Food Hub. The logo was designed by a good friend, and talented designer/illustrator Brian Benham (for more information about his work stay tuned for an upcoming blog post about his work, and check out his LinkedIn page). 

    Drum roll please.....

    Our fantastic new logo features three basic elements each designed to communicate The Locals Food Hub identity--a bike gear, a sprout, and our name. Read below the jump for a short explanation of each. 

  • Seeds of Change

    images_(3).jpeg

    It's cold outside but believe it or not the season to start planning out your garden is near. If you are like me and you need some tips and a little encouragement to get started, the Urban Farm Project has some events planned to help you get excited about growing your own food!

    On February the 3rd, at 530p the first gathering of the Green Reader Book Club will get together at the Faulkner County Library. This month we are reading The Seed Revolution: A Growing Revolution to Save Food by Janisse Ray. Join a conversation about the importance of seeds and how they can help empower communities.

    "Seed Swap", the documentary will be screened in the library's auditorium on February 5th, starting at 7pm. The film, directed by Dr. Brian Campbell and filmed in part by Zach McCannon, follows the team of Conserving Arkansas Agricultural Heritage or CAAH! for short, into the world of seed saving and Seed Swaps in the Ozarks. 

    On February 7th, at 11am Faulkner County's own seed swap will take place in the main entrance of the library. Come exchange stories and ideas, meet some folks who have been growing food in Arkansas for generations, and learn about local varieties of everything from tomatoes and peppers, to beans and flowers. Have no seeds to trade? Not to worry. There is a seed library from which you can 'check-out' seeds that you can return later in the season.
