“Sustainable production with a social purpose.” That’s the Columbus Growing Collective‘s motto. Described as an “eclectic group of farmers, restauranteurs, social entrepreneurs and environmentalists,” it grows food in multiple ways, including in shipping containers, on rooftops and for farm-to-table restaurants, and in multiple locations, including its flagship Italian Village Urban Farm, which you can visit this Sunday, Aug. 7, when it hosts the Multi-Location Mission-Driven Urban Farm Tour from 1 to 2 p.m. The tour is part of the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series and Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series. CFAES is a co-presenter of both series. Learn more here on pp. 23-24.
