Fresh Harvest Farm is a family farm that has been using yellow perch to grow produce sustainably with aquaponics in their three greenhouses since 2011. During the tour, visitors will learn how aquaponics works while conserving resources. The Blackburn's farm is also home to goats, alpacas, and chickens, as well as the Aquaponic Farming Course, a hands-on course that teaches the basics of aquaponics and how to build your own system.

This event is presented by The Ohio State University and part of the 2019 Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series.

OEFFA has been around for 40 years. That's amazing, when you think about it. Forty years of grassroots engagement from farmers, homesteaders, gardeners, activists, and lovers of food building a better way to eat together deserves a hearty cheers. From early meetings in living rooms, to a church basement, to housing more than 30(!) staff in our very own building, we've come a long way together and we are far from finished. So, let's party.

OEFFA World Headquarters is a friendly place filled with casual folks who like their Subarus, dogs, baked goods, and runes. We'd like to invite you down to the office to meet the staff, ask your burning organic questions, complain about weeds, enjoy some snacks, and peruse the office record collection. Bring a treat to share, if you are able, or simply bring yourself! We look forward to your good company.

This event is presented by OEFFA as part of the 2019 Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted in the tour brochure. For more information about all events in the series, go to www.oeffa.org.

Effective grassroots leaders make the difference. Indeed, you, OEFFA's members, make THE difference. Whether you are a long-time advocate for sustainable agriculture, a farmer who sees far too many farm policies harming small farms, or someone newly interested in local food seeking the best way to engage, OEFFA wants to see you thrive as a leader and advocate. OEFFA has partnered with the Institute for Conservation Leadership (ICL) to offer a special leadership training for OEFFA members. Participants will learn about OEFFA's structure, policy priorities, and avenues for engagement, while learning effective advocacy strategies and broadly applicable leadership skills, that will benefit you in your own work, business, or volunteer efforts.

Cost and Registration: $35, includes light breakfast fare and lunch. To register, go to https://action.oeffa.org/be-the-change.
