Explore OEFFA’s Growing Right Oral History project during a stop on its tour of Central Ohio farmers' markets and groceries! Oral historian Jess Lamar Reece Holler and others will be sharing oral history excerpts, photography, multi-media pieces, and print materials from OEFFA's grassroots oral history and media arts project on ecological farming in Ohio. Hear, see, and experience brand-new fieldwork from our summer 2017 interviews and even some experimental sound art! Join us in listening deeply to the stories and places of Ohio's diverse ecological farmers and food systems movement-builders at the very venues where our food choices matter most.
