Homegrown Kentucky: Adam Meredith and Luke McAnally

Adam Meredith and Luke McAnally, two A&S majors, were part of a small group of students that went to the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in Washington, D.C. last month. The project that earned such recognition is called “Homegrown Kentucky,” a new agricultural initiative in Owsley County, Kentucky. A small-scale farm is being designed and planted next to one of the schools in Owsley County; fruits and vegetables produced in the gardens will provide local, fresh food to the school district. The gardens will be maintained by students and community members in Owsley County.

For more information about Homegrown Kentucky, please visit their website, follow them on Facebook, watch a short documentary about the project on YouTube, or email luke.mcanally@uky.edu. The faculty sponsors for this project are Ann Kingsolver and David Ditsch
