The Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series is a joint project sponsored by the Franklin County Office of Ohio State University Extension, and the Columbus Urban Farmers Network. The goal of the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series tours is to demonstrate to the general public the many benefits of urban farms in Columbus.
There is no fee or advance registration required to participate in these tours which are open to the public. Farm tours will be held rain or shine and participants should dress accordingly.
Four Seasons City Farm is the oldest operating urban farm in Columbus. Started in 2004, the non-profit farm operates four sites in the Near Eastside neighborhood covering nearly 1.5 acres. The farm produces berries, tree fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Produce is provided to several food pantries, given to volunteers, and marketed through a 20 share community supported agriculture program. The farm is operated by volunteers and includes a youth education component, including a Summer Chef’s program.
Directions: From I-70 in Columbus, take the Miller/Kelton exit and travel north on Miller Ave. to E. Mound St. Turn left on E. Mound St. and travel approximately 12 blocks to the farm site.
