Join us this summer for the free Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series!
The fourth tour in the series will be held on August 20, at Over the Fence Urban Farm. Over the Fence Urban Farm is dedicated to experimenting with, mastering, and sharing techniques for growing food that promote self-reliance and sustainability, and support the consumption of more fresh, locally harvested, delicious food. Toward these ends, the farm serves as a demonstration site for season extension practices, vertical gardening, and permaculture design. The farm is funded through a community supported agriculture (CSA) program, and family, friends, and neighbors help tend the land.
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.The tour series is free and open to the public, and there is no advanced registration required. Farm tours will be held rain or shine, and participants should dress accordingly.
