Town Hall April 6th on urban farming and the local food economy | Environment
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Just in time for the beginning of the growing season, a public town hall on urban farming and the local food economy will take place on Friday, April 6, 7-9 pm at the First Unitarian Church, 536 Linton Street in Avondale. Leaders in building a new agricultural movement in Cincinnati will discuss sustainable and organic growing practices, community supported agriculture projects, school gardens, fresh food farm markets, local food restaurants, and the possibility of bringing a Food Hub to Cincinnati.
Presenters include Farmer Charles Griffin of the Enright Ecovillage; Deborah Jordan of the Central Ohio River Valley Food Guide; Kristen Barker of the Cincinnati Union Co-op Initiative; Sam Dunlap, School Garden Coordinator at the Civic Garden Center; and Leslie Stevenson of Gabriel’s Place Community Garden and Market Stand.
This program is one of a series of monthly Friday night films and speakers that challenge the idea that we must choose between a strong economy and a healthy planet. The Woman’s City Club, the Social Justice Committee of the First Unitarian Church, the Sierra Club, and the League of Women Voters Natural Resource Committee join the Cincinnati Office of Environmental Quality in cosponsoring the series.
All programs are free and open to the public, with free parking across the street from the church.
