THE HART COUNTY NEWS-HERALD t print@jpinews.com October 25, 2012 11 AGRICULTURE NEWS FROM THE HARTLAND .'"  ' ':s :   , " TheHart County Farmers Market Report By Arlene Wright-Correll This past Tuesday saw a little more done on the long awaited covered pavilion as it looks like the entire fascia boards were on and I guess we are ready for the roofing to be put on. It sure has been a long haul for Virginia Davis and all of us know how hard she has worked on this project. The market offered all kinds of healthy, Kentucky Proud fall produce this week with several varieties of apples and lots of differ- ent kinds of squash among other all the other things our vendors bring to the market each week. Orange vegetables, in- cluding all kinds of squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkins and more are a good source of carotenoids, which can help protect against DNA damage. Cruciferous vegetables which include broccoli, cauliflower and cabbages contain gluco- sinolates which have com- pounds the body breaks down into anti-cancer sub- stances and this week there were lots of Kentucky Proud cabbages offered. Plus a number of Kentucky Proud chemical free or- ganically grown herbs are being harvested each week and many of them stand out for their ability to fight cancer since most are rich sources of flavonoids and carotenoids, which, among other functions, reduce ox- idation (free radical dam- age) and inflammation, both are twin processes that promote chronic dis- eases, including cancer. Kentucky Proud, Hart County honey is still be- ing offered at the market and honey has long been associated with healing go- ing back to ancient times. Avoid grocery store honey since it can be contaminat- ed with pesticides or made with high fructose corn syrup and avoid giving honey to children younger than the age of 2. We are still seeing Ken- tucky Proud garlic being offered at the market and my research shows that a recent study from Wash- ington State University, published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Che- motherapy, looked at the garlic-derived compound diallyl sulfide and found it to be 100 times more ef- fective than two conven- tional antibiotics at killing Campylobactoer, a bacte- rium known to cause many food-borfie illnesses, under research conditions. You can also retain more of garlic's anti-cancer effects when cooking by crushing it ad allowing it to sit for '10 minutes (which allows time for critical enzymatic changes) before adding it to the cooking pan. i PleasesupportyourHart County Farmers Market and we hope to see all you buyers there at the temporary location of the Hart County Farmers Market which opens each Tuesday and Friday at 7:3Oam to 11:30am in the parking lot of the Hart County Health Department. Often some vendors stay as late as 2 pm.

ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, WORK The BRADD/WlA Youth pro- gram is intending to provide high school seniors in need of additional assistance in the preparatorj skills to help them in their upcoming careers.

The BRADD/WlA program has 100 slots for Senior High School Students in the 10 BRADD areas. We are initially allocating 10 slots per county for this career development oppor- tunity. The information that you will need is available on the BRADD/WlA web site at www.bredd.org.
