    From the greenhouse to the dinner table, what was once just an idea has become a business venture that provides local farmers and gardeners with plants and seedlings to help them get through the coldest months of the year. See how this makes it easier to keep sustainability and localism on your plate.

     

    CincySprouts allows for vegetables and herbs to be grown in a greenhouse during the winter months.

    Rosa Michaels was working as a farm apprentice for Cultivate! Ohio Valley (formerly Our Harvest Research and Education Institute) in Summer 2015. “I expressed that I would like a more challenging training experience as an apprentice,” explains Michaels. “Ken Stern, coordinator of the apprenticeship program at Cultivate! Ohio Valley, came back that fall with a small grant from the City of Cincinnati’s Urban Agriculture Fund and an idea.”

    That idea was to propagate vegetable plants for local farmers as a way to advance Michaels’ own education as an apprentice, but also as a way to generate income through the winter and early spring.

    Soon, CincySprouts was born. CincySprouts is a vegetable and herb transplant growing business.

    “CincySprouts is a venture started to provide local farmers and gardeners in the Cincinnati area with plants and seedlings grown locally without the use of synthetic chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers,” says Michaels.

    CincySprouts will be in three greenhouses this spring and summer season, helping to grow seeds for local gardeners and farmers.

    However, CincySprouts is much more than just a transplant venture.

    “CincySprouts offers several wholesale possibilities for local growers and customizable retail purchase options for gardeners,” she adds.

    Michaels is just one of the several people behind CincySprouts. Stern is also on the team as well as Charles Griffin of Cincinnati State’s Sustainable Agriculture Program, Anna Haas of Ohio Valley Food Connection, Akshay Ahuja of Green Acres and Cincinnati Magazine, and Stefanie Kremer, who Michaels credits with bringing the idea of CincySprouts to life in the dead of winter and made the project possible during crunch time of spring and summer farming times.

    According to Michaels, what makes CincySprouts unique is that it is the only small-contract grower in Cincinnati. “Farmers or gardeners can select what they want grown from our seed supply and/or they can send us their seeds to propagate for them,” says Michaels. “The prices stay the same either way.”

    CincySprouts aims to be as accommodating as possible and work closely with customers to ensure that they get exactly what they ordered.

    “Handing over your future plant babies is a big ordeal for most full-time growers,” says Michaels. “Transplants are the base of any farming operation, the plans need to be healthy from the beginning to turn into hardy vegetables or herb plants later in the season.”

    CincySprouts is dedicated to sustainability and localism. The soilless mix is organic production approved and purchased from Ohio Earth Foods, the seeds are purchase from small seed companies like High Mowing Seeds, Seed Savers Exchange, Ohio Heirloom Seeds, and Johnny’s Selected Seeds, and fertilizers are animal or mineral based and organic production approved.

    CincySprouts has planted seeds in Cultivate’s heated greenhouse in College Hill on the century-old Bahr Farm, and will be located in three greenhouse locations this year. Seeding began in January at Cincinnati State’s greenhouse in Clifton, and then in March everything moved to the homebase greenhouse at Bahr Farm, and in April CincySprouts will be using an additional greenhouse on gorman Heritage Farm off Reading Road.

    “In 2016, CincySprouts grew for Giving Fields, a freestore food bank farm in Melbourne, Kentucky; Gabrield’s Place in Avondale; gorman Heritage Farm in Cincinnati; OTR Home Grown Urban Farm; Mt Washington Urban Farm; Rob Lewis of Turner Farm in Madeira; and St. Francis Community Garden,” says Michaels. She adds that CincySprouts also took small, custom orders from gardeners and sold every Saturday and Sunday at Findlay Market.

    While CincySprouts is a fairly new venture, Michaels has already found her happy place with it. Her favorite part is being in the greenhouse working, whether with the team or solo, as she seeds thousands of seeds. “It’s meditative and calming,” she says. “I also love educating folks who may have never grown something before or they are planning their first garden, I’ve been told my enthusiasm is contagious, but I want people to experience the same joy and absolute satisfaction of growing something from a little plant to it becoming a dinner dish. Personally there is nothing more gratifying.”

    CincySprouts will return to Findlay Market for the 2017 season. And Michaels adds that in addition to the normal Findlay Market weekends, CincySprouts will be doing pop-ups shops around Cincinnati, beginning in May. These pop-ups include the Cincinnati Earth Day Event in Blue Ash on April 22 and Sayler Park Sustains event on June 10. The team is also planning for other pop-ups this year as well.  

    CincySprouts merchandise will soon be available, with a redesigned logo. They will be selling everything including buttons, magnets, stickers, and t-shirts, all of which will be available at any of the retail pop-ups and Findlay Market.

    “Cultivate! Ohio Valley also holds workshops about once a month that are geared more towards farmers, but anyone that is interested can attend,” says Michaels of those who are interested in learning more. “Workshops this year included greenhouse building, seeds starting, the ins and outs of organic certification, and successful urban farm business planning.”

    Learn about a new Covington-based incubator kitchen that’s helping local start-ups cook up success.

     

    Looking to start or grow your own food-based business? There’s a new 5,000 sq. ft. commercial incubator kitchen in Covington now available for rent.

    Kickstart Kitchen, located in the basement of the CovWorx building, offers a variety of rental options – from hourly to monthly – for start-ups looking for commercial kitchen space.

    The idea came to founder Mavis Linnemann-Clark from her first-hand experience launching her businesses. Her first company, The Delish Dish, was launched through the spring class of Bad Girl Ventures. That same year, she joined the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen and launched her artisan jam line, Made by Mavis. “I started my company from an incubator and I thought it was a great way to start a business,” she says. “Now I want to help others do the same.”

    Linnemann-Clark says she offers more than just the kitchen space, too. “As a business we offer commercial kitchen space and complimentary business services for our clients,” she adds, “we offer them a community.”

    Mavis Linnemann-Clark, Founder of Kickstart Kitchen.

    To many new businesses, Kickstart Kitchen acts as a mentor of sorts and brings these businesses into a community full of people who want to help. People in the community can then grow from each other and their lessons learned.

    Linnemann-Clark says the process of Kickstart Kitchen begins with one-on-one discussions between her and potential clients, and then they discuss the rental details and develop a plan that will help the client and their business grow. After that, it is up to the individual to create their own success story.

    Kickstart Kitchen is located at 1032 Madison Ave, Covington, KY 41011. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/kickstartkitchen/ or mavis@thedelishdish.com.

    Two friends took their fashion-forward dream of launching an online boutique and made it happen. Learn more about it and how they’re making a brick-and-mortar boutique debut in Old Milford soon.

     

    Jackson Whitacre is currently preparing to open its first brick-and-mortar location in Old Milford.

    Friends Julie Crowthers and Haley Kemp have a passion for do-it-yourself projects. The two have completed a number of projects in their own homes including unique light fixtures, custom counter tops, shutters, and various home decor projects.

    “We jokingly toyed with the idea of starting our own shop,” laughs Kemp. “We didn’t know exactly what it entailed, but no matter where we were or what we were doing, the subject always came up.”

    Then, thanks to their DIY abilities, friends, family, and coworkers began asking the two to make pieces for them. Kemp says she doesn’t know when it became official, but the seriousness of starting their own business venture began.

    Kemp and Crowthers began planning and purchasing clothing and home decor items for their new business in March 2016. Then, on May 2, 2016, they officially launched Jackson Whitacre.

    “Jackson Whitacre is an online retail shop that sells homemade furnishings for your home as well as custom nursery pieces along with trend apparel and other home decor,” explains Kemp.

    When you shop at Jackson Whitacre you’ll find a wide variety of women and children’s clothing and accessories, custom made nursery products, homemade home furnishings, trendy home decor pieces, and natural bath and body products.  

    A goal for Kemp and Crowthers was to keep their prices pocketbook friendly, and they did just that. “We offer something for everyone, with pricing starting at $5.95,” says Kemp.

    According to Kemp, what makes Jackson Whitacre unique is the wide variety of products they offer. “We strive to keep prices in a moderate range so people from all walks of life can find something for themselves or a loved one,” adds Kemp.

    This year promises to be something big for Kemp and Crowthers at Jackson Whitacre. Kemp says the two will be opening a Jackson Whitacre storefront in Old Milford in the coming weeks.

    There’s a new event series coming to Cincinnati that will nourish your mind, body, spirit, and social life. Keep reading for all the delicious details.

     

    Yoga Supper Club

    Gone are the days of choosing between working out, eating out, or time with friends. A local group created an event series where you can do all of the above.

    The series, launching June 17, “includes an enchanting instructor led yoga practice, vegetarian dinner, refreshments and dessert combined with a beautiful setting at various locations around Cincinnati,” says Mija Speakman, Health and Wellness Coach and Yoga Instructor.

    The first event is going to take place at the Marmalade Lily, which is just outside Loveland on a flower farm. “There is a beautiful modern barn where the yoga class will be held, and grounds where we will have the outside dinner,” she says.  “I actually attended a wedding and a wedding rehearsal dinner here, and fell in love. The idea didn’t come to me until later, but when it did, I knew exactly where I wanted to host the first event.”

    The inspiration behind starting Yoga Supper Club was to “bring together the nourishment of a yoga practice, along with a healthy dinner and create a beautiful space for people to share, connect, as well as practice yoga,” Speakman says. The event gives you a chance to explore yoga and experience different recipes with each new event. “I don’t want it to sound too exclusive, but at the same time, give the idea that it’s more than just an event. Ideally people will attend and come back to each Yoga Supper Club,” she says.

    At the first meeting, it’s going to begin with a yoga class, them there’s going to be an organic dinner and dessert from Rooted Juicery. “There will be plenty of free time after dinner to mingle, walk through the flower garden and relax. We will close with a guided meditation,” Speakman says. There are so many health benefits for doing yoga, such as reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, reducing risk for heart disease, improving flexibility and posture, and increasing clarity and balance.

    There is such a need for the Yoga Supper Club in the Cincinnati area, Speakman says. “There are not a lot of events that bring together, both a yoga practice and a nutritious dinner at the same time,” she adds. “There is more and more need for community building within Cincinnati, not just for the city, but for our own individual health and well being.”

    A group of 161 theater enthusiasts are making an exciting new production possible at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. Read on for all the dramatic details.

     

    The cast of JANE EYRE. Photo by Mikki Schaffner.

    There’s a new production at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, and it’s made possible by an important group of Leading Ladies.

    On March 11, the production began, combining Victorian-era costumes and romance with inventive staging. The story is based on Charlotte Brontë’s timeless coming-of-age tale, considered one of the most widely read novels in the English language

    Adapted by British playwright Polly Teale, the play distills the book to the most essential moments and dramatic action, bringing new creativity and vitality to the classic story. Cincinnati Playhouse Associate Artist and Director KJ Sanchez envisioned music, movement and choreography to transport Jane Eyre’s story to the stage.

    “Because the adaptation is so strong, we – the design team, the actors and me – are bringing our own artistry to it,” Sanchez explains. “The actors play musical instruments. I’m working with a great choreographer, Peter Kyle, who I have worked with and admired for years. And I’m thrilled that we have one of the best sound designers in theatre today, Jane Shaw, writing original music for this production.”

    Published in 1847, JANE EYRE is a rare classic that moves through time and continues to capture audiences. Poor and plain but with a fiery spirit, Jane overcomes a troubled childhood to land a position as a governess at a mysterious estate, where she falls for the enigmatic master and finds her love returned. When the past threatens her newfound happiness, Jane decides to forge her own path, which enables her to be true to herself and follow her heart. The unconventional heroine, played by Margaret Ivey, will cast a spell on fans of the classic novel and on newcomers drawn to her story.

    Beyond the beauty, costumes, artistry, choreography and music lies a story with a message that resonates today, and to which Sanchez relates personally.

    “I read this book when I was 13 and it honestly changed my life,” Sanchez explains. ”Jane Eyre was a heroine altogether different from any I had encountered. She was smart and strong and not afraid to speak her mind. She was most comfortable in nature, least comfortable when required to be charming. In fact, she’s reviled, punished and mistreated because she is ‘plain’ — yet Jane is essentially downright beautiful but hated because her beauty is unique and doesn’t fit what is expected by social norms.”

    JANE EYRE is sponsored by Leading Ladies, a group of 161 theater enthusiasts who collectively supported the production with financial gifts while learning about theatre through behind-the-scenes experiences throughout the season.

    Prices for JANE EYRE start at $35; they vary depending on seat location and performance day and are subject to change. Tickets for teens and students are $30. Student tickets are just $15 on the day of the show. Plus, Sunday is College Night, with tickets to all 7:00 p.m. performances are $10. To learn more, visit www.cincyplay.com.

      Inspired by the artistic beauty that makes Cincinnati so colorful, two local entrepreneurs set out to highlight and tell the stories of the city’s makers and creators. Learn more about this story-telling dynamic duo, the resource they’ve created, and how they’re now expanding its reach to neighboring cities.

       

      Five-Dots is an online-based publication that focuses on Cincinnati’s booming arts community.

      While it may not be obvious to everyone, Cincinnati is truly an art destination. To help others realize the density of the arts community, local artist and writer Megan Bickel and photographer Cassandra Zetta Niehaus launched a collaborative, non-profit style, bi-monthly online arts publication called Five-Dots.

      “We started Five-Dots in July 2016 with the intent of opening up the lines of conversation between artists, makers, curators, and the public,” explains Bickel.

      Cassandra Niehaus, Co-Founder of Five-Dots.

      Bickel and Niehaus use their publication to speak with a variety of members from Cincinnati’s creative community. “We speak about their work, process, ideas, concerns about their community, and workspace as a means to discuss greater general topics such as the politics of being a creative entrepreneur, the financial and social risks of taking up non-traditional work paths, and how it affects them for the better and worse,” adds Bickel.

      This dynamic duo was inspired to launch Five-Dots after encounter other online publications such as Two Coats of Pain by Sharon Butler in New York and In-the-Make by Klea McKenna and writer Nikki Grattan in addition to several arts podcasts, and seeing that man people outside the arts community in Cincinnati had no idea just how abundant the arts are in the city.

      “We wanted to create a platform that was engaging, stimulating, and thoughtful without being intimidating,” says Bickel. “We wanted to challenge without being confrontational.”

      Five-Dots started out as a project based out of Cincinnati, however, Bickel says it will continue to grow in the next months to include Louisville, Lexington, and other areas in the region.

      Megan Bickel, Co-Founder of Five-Dots.

      Today, Five-Dots published interviews on artists, printmakers, designers, and curators, thanks to the growth since since launching just over six months ago.

      This unique take on the artistic community in Cincinnati is one of the city’s best kept secrets. “We provide a service to creaties and non-creatives alike in that we bring the lofty, 20th century ideas of what an artist is and we bring it down to earth,” says Bickel. “We want the general public to see that being in the creative industry is like no other. The people we interview are their own product generators, marketers, publishers, shippers, accountants, and in general, badasses that own every single component of their practice.”

      The goal of Five-Dots is to introduce the general community the wonder, freedom, and obligation that comes along with being an artist, maker, and curator.  “Five-Dots hopes to encourage others to dive into what makes them happiest,” adds Bickel. “Because, at the end of the day, you are the biggest contribution to your community when you do what you do best,”

      You can expect to see content from Five-Dots continuing to be published in the coming months. Bickel says the two will launch a few interviews in the coming months with several international online galleries while hoping to open up the question, “what is regional within the context of the Internet?”

      Five-Dots can be found within the blog section of Made in Cincinnati and will soon be found through a co-launching program with AEQAI, in which Five-Dots will share selected relevant content from each other’s publications.

      Bickel adds that Five-Dots is also always taking submissions from creatives in the area, and those who are interested in submitting can visit www.five-dots.com to fill out the contact form.

      To learn more about Five-Dots, visit www.five-dots.com. The two launches new interviews every first and final Friday of the month. You can also follow along on Instagram and Facebook for updates on launches and to learn more about the interviewees highlighted.

      Learn about a jewelry and watch store that’s been a Cincinnati staple (but best kept secret) since the mid 1950’s.

       

      Hudepohl Jewelers was launched in 1956 and is one of the best kept secrets in Cincinnati.

      Don Hudepohl, the original owner of Hudepohl Jewelers, learned the art of watch repair following WWII. He combined his love of watches with his wife Rita’s love of jewelry to create a unique experience where quality and customer service came first. Thus, in 1956 the business was born.

      The original location of the jeweler was at DeSales Corner in East Walnut Hills. The former name of the store was Rie-Don Jewelers. Hudepohl Jewelers moved to their current location on the 7th floor of the Provident Building at the corner of 7th and Vine Streets in 1972.

      Currently, Barry Hudepohl, the son of the original owners, runs the business. He earned his gemology degree in 1986 and took over the company in 1995. The store’s staff consists of 8 loyal, longtime employees. Joyce Yancey, the bookkeeper at Hudepohl Jewelers, has been with the company since the move to the Vine Street location. Between all of the staff, there are three gemologists and with over 30 years of experience in the company.

      Fast forward to 2016. The store officially celebrated its 6oth anniversary. Contributing to its long-term success is the store’s specialization in custom design jewelry and engagement rings. Hudepohl Jewelers carries a large variety of high quality diamonds, gem stones, and unique mountings. Hudepohl says they also offer custom design capabilities, expert repair services, and competitive pricing.

      Hudepohl says their prices are affordable since the store doesn’t advertise, and relies solely on word-of-mouth. In today’s marketing and consumer crazed economy, this is almost unheard of, Hudepohl says, but by prioritizing customer service, the store has gathered a loyal following.

      Hudepohl Jewelers values the memories that are made through all of their jewelry. “We have many stories of customers that make a piece of jewelry with their family diamonds,” says gemologist Susan Quinlan Zink. “This Christmas, we had a customer that was brought to tears by the necklace we created.”

      Last year, a customer was being shown a $500,000 diamond and said he would take two! Another customer proposed to his fiancée in the store, and the jewelers were more than happy to help with the engagement surprise!

      And the surprises don’t stop there! After 45 years, the store is facing an exciting new move. Hudepohl says they are hoping to stay near their current location. Watch for updates beginning in late summer on their Facebook, Instagram, and website.

      A local woman launched a business that encourages dogs to start exercising. Keep reading for all the tail-wagging details.

       

      4 Paws Running Co. gives your four-legged friends a chance to get out and run.

      Do you want your furry friend to get more in shape? 4 Paws Running Co. is a startup business that is currently located in Terrace Park, Ohio. Kimberly Renie, Founder and Operations Manager of 4 Paws Running Company, has a passion for dogs and running, and wanted to create a company that was a culmination of both.

      “I personally have been a lifelong runner and have participated in half marathons, marathons, and various road races. We also have six teenagers and three dogs living under our roof,” she says. “With all the teenagers, dogs and working full time at our primary jobs, we noticed the dogs would be extra rambunctious if we didn’t take the time to exercise them. When they were not exercised, it was stressful on everyone.”

      4 Paws was started with families as the main focus. Renie works with her husband and her three children. “Every family loves their pet, and wants the best, but doesn’t always have the time. We want to help them in the department. Easing the stress on families while doing something we love is very easy for use,” says Renie.

      She always wanted to start her own running business. “Because I also love fashion, initially I wanted to own a running company apparel store,” says Renie. “Since I haven’t gotten to the point of building and running apparel part of the company, I took the name and added the 4 Paws, since our main clientele have 4 paws.” The mission of 4 Paws Running Co. is “to exercise our canine friends to help them burn energy, drain anxiety, and lead an overall happy life,” she says.

      There are two different services offered at 4 Paws. Dog running involves “pacing the dogs through a vigorous one hour running adventure. Like all good pacers, we make sure the dogs get water and rest breaks when appropriate. The distance is usually two to five miles, depending on the fitness level or the dog and the current weather conditions,” says Renie. “If a new dog can’t initially run for a full hour, we break up the session with periods of walking and slowly building up their endurance. A run recap with statistics is provided to the owner after each workout.” The running rate for a dog is $25 and an additional $5 if there is more than one dog.

      There is also walking. “Here we ease up the pace and take the dog on a purposeful stroll around the neighborhood for 25 minutes. During the outing they enjoy fresh air, sunshine hopefully, bathroom breaks and sniffing out their territory.” The walking rate is $15 per outing and every additional dog is $5.

      There are so many benefits for dogs to exercise. For walking, it gives you a break from the monotony of the day, but dogs need more vigorous exercise to feel calm and relaxed.  

      “Repressed energy can easily translate into anxiety issues and a chaotic household. Our team of distance runners and experienced dog handlers will guide dogs through a fun and challenging workout designed around his or her needs,” she says. R

      unning is positive for dogs because it can be a part of a training process. “From being a long time dog owner, I have realized that the structure behind keeping a pace, shortening a leash and verbal positive reinforcement can have the major positive effects on a dog,” says Renie.

      4 Paws defines success by having a happy family. “If we can bring happiness to the dogs, which in turn brings happiness to the families, then we have done our job,” she says.

      Cincy Chic: What types of products can customers find at the store?
      Jones: We carry a wide variety of women’s clothing and accessories. Our Lebanon and Beechmont locations have the awesome opportunity of having a designated home section. Our unique home items include small decor, signs, florals, chandeliers, and custom home furniture.

      Cincy Chic: Can you give us a price range for items?
      Jones: This is something that is truly hard to pinpoint because of the wide variety of products we offer. For our clothing, we have items as low as $12.99. For our jewelry, we have items at low as $2.99. Our price points are affordable for anyone.
