Magic House Farms, 120 N. Yale Ave, Columbus, OH 43222

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.

Magic House Farms is a community-based urban farm spanning a half acre on converted vacant lots in the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus. In its third season, the farm focuses on companion planting and intercropping. Across four city Land Bank parcels, practices rooted in organic agriculture have been used to maximize a healthy crop yield and variety for food for the local community. The expansion and experimentation of the farm have been made possible by volunteers. Guests are invited to see how this urban oasis in a distressed neighborhood has grown from a small one person operation to a flourishing and needed neighborhood resource.

Directions: In Columbus, exit I-70 onto Broad St./Rte. 40. Drive east on Broad St. toward downtown Columbus and turn left onto N. Yale Ave.
