The next Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, features Ramsi's Cafe on the World and its organic farm, Iroquois Amphitheater’s 75th anniversary, the Louisville Visual Art Association, and Peace of the Earth’s handmade products. The program premieres Saturday, Oct. 12 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET and Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7:30/6:30 p.m. on KET2.
Louisville Life visits the popular Highlands neighborhood fixture Ramsi’s Café on the World and learns from owners Ramsi and Rhona Kamar how their new Raising Hope Organic Farm is transforming their lives and their restaurant. The program visits their 16-acre organic farm, which has a year-round production of herbs, vegetables, fruits, goats, and chickens, among others. Their operation is certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Next, the Iroquois Amphitheater celebrates its diamond jubilee, and the program visits the Louisville landmark to learn the historical and cultural impact of Kentucky’s official amphitheater.
Louisville Life also heads to the NuLu neighborhood to chat with Joe and Leslie Bowers, owners of Peace of the Earth natural bath boutique. Peace of the Earth offers all-natural and organic soaps, lotions and ointments, all handmade by the owners. In addition, their products are natural and eco-friendly, right down to the packaging.
In the studio, Clifft talks with Shannon Westerman, executive director of the Louisville Visual Art Association, an organization that has engaged artists and audiences through art education, community outreach, artist advocacy and support services, and ongoing exhibitions. Westerman discusses these initiatives and the organization’s new downtown location.
