On going organic — and on being a woman urban farmer

In addition to the Pioneering Urban Farm Tour, the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series features a second tour on Saturday, July 13: the Transitional Produce and Flower Farm Tour at Happy Toes Homestead in Columbus. Owner Katie Hawkins started the 2-acre farm just two years ago. She grows microgreens, herbs, cut flowers, and heirloom vegetables, which she sells through a CSA, at farmer’s markets, and to local restaurants.

Organic transition, certification

The tour, the series brochure says, will look at the organic transition and certification process and “will also focus on the challenges of being a woman farmer in an urban environment, which has not been previously farmed.”

Registration is free by emailing happytoeshomestead@gmail.com.

CFAES is one of the series sponsors.
