Making compost, growing grains

August 19th - National Aviation DayThe Organic Compost Farm Tour, part of the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series, is this Friday, Aug. 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hirzel Canning Company and Farms in Luckey in northwest Ohio. You’ll visit the farm’s licensed compost facility, which turns crop, grain, livestock and canning waste into soil-improving compost, which is used on the farm or is sold to other farms. You’ll also learn about small grains and how the farm prepares custom, regional and international orders. The fifth-generation farm grows on more than 2,000 acres, some 700 of which are certified organic. Learn more here on p. 13.
