‘Demonstrating a sense of hope’

You’re invited to check out the oldest working urban farm in Columbus.

The Pioneering Urban Farm Tour, set for 10–11:30 a.m. Saturday, July 13, features Four Seasons City Farm, a nonprofit urban garden serving Columbus’s Near East neighborhood. Started in 2004, and now with four locations, the farm grows berries, tree fruits, vegetables, and more.

Spotlighting urban and sustainable farms

The farm, according to its website, is “committed to building a sense of community and renewing our urban neighborhood by beautifying our area, by turning abandoned lots into gardens, by creating a self-sustaining and cooperative food production system, and by demonstrating a sense of hope, belonging and spiritual renewal through sharing the garden work.”

Admission to the tour is free and open to the public. The tour is part of both the Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series and the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series, both of which count CFAES among their sponsors.
