10:30am
St. Stephens | 1500 E. 17th Ave. 

The Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series is a joint project sponsored by the Franklin County Office of Ohio State University Extension, and the Columbus Urban Farmers Network. The goal of the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series tours is to demonstrate to the general public the many benefits of urban farms in Columbus.

Come see how Project Aquastar has expanded and evolved into a sustainable and productive non-profit urban education farm which is addressing food security in one of the most distressed neighborhoods in Columbus. Project AquaStar includes a new greenhouse and a closed loop circulating aquaponics ecosystem producing Tilapia and vegetables and herbs to serve their innovative 30 member “Buy One-Give One” CSA. More than 40 different fruits and vegetables are grown in high tunnel, in-ground, and aquaponics production systems. The farm uses regenerative soil management techniques and has added chickens and bees to the operation. An EPA Class II compost facility is also operated onsite.
