OSU organic farming leader receives top honor

Deb Stinner, head of Ohio State’s nationally known Organic Food and Farming Education and Research program, has received one of two Stewardship Awards presented by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA). It’s the group’s highest honor. She’s the first recipient of the award from Ohio State. Also honored was Ed Snavely, a Knox County farmer with whom Stinner has collaborated on a number of studies. “Both Deb and Ed care deeply about creating a sustainable food system,” said OEFFA Executive Director Carol Goland. “We should all be sincerely grateful for what they have done to advance sustainable agriculture in our community.”
