Thirteen years ago, Florence Reed started a small organization out of her parents’ spare bedroom, which grew into what is now Sustainable Harvest International. Originally, the idea was to save what was left of the tropical rainforests, but it has grown from that into an organization that does so much more.

On the afternoon of Monday, September 24, students walked the JAYwalk only to encounter locally grown vegetables, locally baked pies and breads, and locally made cheeses. As part of the Bite! Sagan National Colloquium, Ohio Wesleyan worked with Main Street Delaware to bring the farmers market to campus.
