"Stick to Local Food" Celebrates Rondout Valley Farms

"Eat local" is a mantra to live by - for our health, for the environment, for the strength of our economy and community. A new project called "Stick to Local Food" offers to keep this mantra alive in our consciousness, and will make it fun for people of all ages to visit and learn about our local farms.

The brainchild of Accord-based artist Maria Reidelbach, the project involves creating a map of participating Rondout Valley farms, with colorful stickers to complete the map and raise awareness in kids and other visitors. The free folding maps have spots for each colorful, theme-shaped sticker from places like Kelder's Farm, Westwind Orchard, and the Kingston Farmers' Market. When the map is complete, you can receive a special Stick to Local finishing sticker.

A Kickstarter campaign for Stick to Local, which reached its goal of $4,350 just yesterday, will fund the project - so you can expect to find maps and stickers in participating farms later this summer. Yet you can still contribute: If the campaign receives $1,000 over its goal, it can make more copies of the map (Ellenville schools requested 1,200) and celebrate with a launch party. Check out the Kickstarter page for rewards and incentives for contributing.

See you at the farms.
