3: The Local Patch, Newport’s market garden

We talk with Amy Smith of The Local Patch RI. Along with her husband Andrew, they grow organic, chemical and pesticide free crops, and sell them through their CSA program, as well as at Aquidneck Growers Market twice a week.

We talk why they chose this farming life, the quality of local soil and how a little bug psychology goes a long way.

As a CSA member, I’m eagerly awaiting my share of this years crop. After listening to the show, you’ll want to sign up for your family too. But act fast – there’s a waiting list.
