OMUF Graduates are Building Healthier Communities

The Ohio Master Urban Farmer (OMUF) program hosted by OSU Extension and Local Matters was a great success! It was so exciting to see our diverse group of attendees learning practical skills to grow food in urban environments.

It's Growing Good with Urban Farming

There is a reason it’s called Ohio Master Urban Farmer Workshop Series. After sitting in on one of the workshops, anyone with only a basic understanding of what urban farming entails would easily triple their knowledge.

Starting Seeds Indoors Can Put You on the Right Path to Your Garden

I can hardly believe it’s almost the time of year to start planning and preparing for the garden. We are so excited here at Local Matters to get back outside and help people discover ways to connect to truly delicious, healthful food!

Columbus’s First Annual Fall Seed Swap – What, How & Why

 

By Elizabeth Neer

The seed swap is on Saturday, October 20, 2012, at 11:30 am – 2:00 pm at OSU Urban Arts Space.

It is FREE and open to the public. This is because we firmly believe that growing healthy, delicious food is cultural work that should be shared by everyone in the community.  We all eat, right?
