Join the 2016 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series! Held from June 7 through Nov. 13, this annual series of public tours features 32 organic and ecological farms and businesses in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, providing unique opportunities for farmers, educators, and conscientious eaters to learn about sustainable agriculture and local foods on the farm from growers and producers with years of practical experience. In addition to farm tours, this year’s series also includes 10 educational workshops on water quality, grass-feed beef, poultry production, season extension, beekeeping, permaculture, biochar, carcass scanning, and organic production.
All tours and workshops are free and open to the public and do not require pre-registration (unless otherwise noted). Events will take place rain or shine. Guests should dress appropriately; hats, sunglasses, long pants, closed toe walking shoes, and sunscreen are recommended. Tours involve standing and moderate walking; visitors with physical limitations or other concerns should contact the tour host in advance. For everyone’s safety, guests should keep children with them at all times. Please do not bring pets to the tours.
