HINTON – The demand for fresh local produce is growing beyond its supply, which has three organizations vying for a fix.

The New River Gorge Regional Development Authority is hosting "Farm, Food, and Finance," a class designed to bring local growers together with folks in the community.

Together with West Virginia State University and National Capital Investment, the day will feature a panel discussion and a keynote speech by Jim Monroe of Greenbrier Nursieries.

The goal will be connecting business leaders with farmers in an effort to increase production in Southern West Virginia.

To take part, visit the Sandstone Visitors Center in Hinton Tuesday from 12 to 2 p.m.
