Zoom meeting 

Sunday, May 24, 2020
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Open/Close

The revitalization of the regional Southwest Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association began with its first Zoom meeting on Sunday, May 17, 2020.

Sadly, the meeting was cut short due to some Zoom glitches, so another virtual meeting has been scheduled for Sunday, May 24 from 1:00-2:30 p.m.

Please consider joining to brainstorm ways to make SWOEFFA an important presence in southwest Ohio. All are welcome to join the conversation to set goals and take next steps, even if you weren't part of last Sunday's meeting.

Looking forward to continued planning for SWOEFFA with your input!
