Bluegrass Barn Raising


The Bluegrass Barn Raising was held on April 7, 2015 at the E.S. Good Barn at the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. The goal of this invitation-only event was to convene stakeholders working on the supply side of the local food economy in an effort to build consensus and identify priorities around how we can collectively work to meet the increasing demand for local food in the region.
