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.
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.
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!
