2024 OEFFA Ohio Statehouse Lobby Day

Columbus, Ohio 

Wednesday, April 10, 2024
10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Join OEFFA's policy team and the Ohio Soil Health Initiative (OSHI) for a day at the Statehouse advocating for healthy soil policy in Ohio!

The 2024 Lobby Day will start with learning how to have effective meetings with policymakers. Our staff will share tips and demonstrate different legislative meeting scenarios and attendees will learn more about potential soil health policies for Ohio. We'll spend the afternoon meeting with our elected officials and advocating for policies that support soil health. Specifically, we'll advocate for including Ohio Soil Health Week as an amendment to H.B. 162.

A light breakfast and complimentary lunch will be offered, in addition to travel stipends for farmers. Please contact lauren@oeffa.org with questions.

Downtown Columbus traffic and parking can be challenging, so please give yourself ample time to find a space. Accessible parking is available at the following garages: Columbus Commons Underground Parking Garage (191 S. 3rd St.) and Columbus Commons Main Parking Garage (55 E. Rich St.). If mobility challenges prevent you from being able to park that far away, please contact us in advance and we will figure out an alternative arrangement.

Registration closes Friday, March 29. We have limited space, so if you are unable to attend, please let us know ASAP so we can involve another advocate.
