Join us this summer for the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series! A joint project sponsored by OSU Extension, Franklin County and the Columbus Urban Farmers Network, the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series is designed to provide an inside look at several local urban farms, demonstrating the many benefits of urban farming in central Ohio. The tour series is free and open to the public, and there is no advanced registration required to participate. Farm tours will be held rain or shine, and participants should dress accordingly.
The next tour in the series will be held on Aug. 13, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at Scotts Community Garden Campus at Franklin Park Conservatory. Visit the Scotts Miracle Gro Community Garden Campus for beauty and inspiration. Designed as a living classroom and idea center, this four acre garden provides creative resources for anyone interested in gardening and edible landscapes. Explore the culinary, herb, and fragrance gardens, live-fire cooking area, theater, apiary, rose pavilion, berry house, and 40 community garden plots.
The final tour date in the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series will be Aug. 14, from 2-4 p.m. at Weurfulville Suburban Farmstead.
The Columbus Urban Farmers Network is an alliance of urban farms and food producers in Columbus. The goal of the network is to strengthen and expand the local food system by producing food in urban areas of Columbus.
