Feed your family farming in suburbia

Old wooden calendar with August 14.It’s a busy weekend for the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. In addition to Saturday’s two events, there’s the Suburban Homestead Tour this Sunday, Aug. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. It’s at Weurfulville Suburban Farmstead in Canal Winchester. Owner Teresa Gottier “farms a small yard using all possible growing space by growing vertically in containers and raised beds,” the tour description says. Through those and other practices, including low tunnels and a mini-greenhouse, “her yields have steadily increased, enabling the microfarm to produce enough food feed the family year-round with surplus to sell to the neighbors.” Get details here on pp. 24-25.
