Mansfield event will showcase microfarms

The Mansfield Microfarm Project—an effort to demonstrate small-scale, high-yield, sustainable urban farming based at Ohio State’s Mansfield campus—is holding a free public symposium on Friday, Nov. 15. The program will feature site visits to newly constructed urban microfarms and presentations on research and programming by the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research, which has provided a $2 million matching grant in support of the microfarm project.


The symposium runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the North End Community Improvement Collaborative main office, 134 N. Main St. in Mansfield. Lunch is included. Learn more and register to attend.
