Large-Scale Urban Farm Tour

Columbus, OH  

Monday, August 24, 2015
5-7pm

Open/Close

Urban Farms of Central Ohio, an initiative of the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, transforms vacant and underutilized sites in underserved neighborhoods into productive, sustainable urban farms that provide low-income, food-insecure residents increased access to fresh, local produce. One site has been fully transformed, the Clarfield Farm, and a second site will begin in 2015, the Wheatland Farm. Each farm works to sustain itself and raise awareness about hunger by selling a portion of crops directly to local restaurants in addition to feeding the neighborhood around the farm. The Clarfield Farm operates on three acres of vacant elementary school property in the Marion-Franklin neighborhood. Each week, neighbors visit the farm stand to fill up on fresh, wholesome produce. With three high-tunnel structures at the farm, produce and opportunities for engagement are available year-round.

Directions: From I-71, take the Frank Rd./Rte. 104 exit and head east. Exit Frank Rd./Rte. 104 at Groveport Rd. Turn right and drive south. The farm will be about 1.5 miles from the exit and will be on the left, with parking in the rear of the school building.

This event is sponsored by the Ohio State University Sustainable Agriculture Team and the Columbus Agrarian Society and is part of the 2015 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop series. For more information about other events in the series, go to www.oeffa.org.
