Many of these growers are members of the Local Growers Guild, where you can find more information about local foods in south central Indiana.

The Local Growers' Guild is a cooperative of farmers, retailers, and community members dedicated to strengthening the local food economy in southern Indiana through education, direct support, and market connections.

Bloomingfoods used funds received from equity in the Blooming Prairie Cooperative Warehouse to give local growers seed money to start the Guild in 2006.
