Ohio Master Urban Farmer Workshop Series

The Ohio Master Urban Farmer Workshop Series is a new program developed by OSU Extension as an outgrowth of planning for part of the new Extension in The City program.

This series of nine evening workshops is designed to help individuals learn how to produce and market all kinds of food in urban settings. While the workshop’s content will be introductory, individuals who already have some experience growing or marketing food products are invited to participate.

The cost of the entire program is just $100 per participant , which will include a course notebook, several books, light refreshments each evening, and a Certificate of Completion. A limited number of scholarships are available for participants with financial constraints, (contact Lee Richter at richter.71@osu.edu or at 419-578-6783 for info about scholarships.)

Successful graduates of the Ohio Master Urban Farmer program will also receive free assistance on securing land, tool, seeds, and other resources needed to start or expand a successful growing venture.
