Mike Hogan, Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator, was recognized by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association's (OEFFA) 2019 Service Award. Mike has partnered with OEFFA for more than a decade on the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series and on workshops presented at the conference. In speaking of his experience working with OEFFA Mike had this to say, “Working with OEFFA has been a privilege. OEFFA helped the university evolve its understanding of sustainability in agriculture at a time when many concepts about sustainability were not well understood or well-received. OEFFA members have taught me and my colleagues so much about sustaining Ohio’s farms and families too.” Click here to read the full story.
