‘A chance to connect with people around the state’

OSU President DrakeOhio State President Michael V. Drake last week visited CFAES’s South Centers in Piketon and rolled up his sleeves working in a Vinton County community garden as part of his July-long tour of Ohio. Read about the food crisis in Vinton County, where the last grocery store closed in 2013, and about efforts to improve food security there and throughout Ohio in CFAES’s latest Continuum magazine (PDF; cover story, starts on p. 2). Check out photos of President Drake — and of Brutus Buckeye and CFAES Dean Bruce McPheron, among others — at the community garden by the Vinton County Courier’s Pam Johnson here. (Photo: University Communications.)
