Featured in Columbus Dispatch

If the October 21st article in the Columbus Dispatch connected you with our organization, we would like to welcome you.  We are grateful that you have visited our site and hope that you will have the chance to visit us in person.

As a note our current visitation hours are Wednesdays through Fridays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  As there are some days that we are not open to the public we ask that you call to ensure we are indeed open before you visit.  Additionally, on our calendar page the days that we are open are noted.  From the calendar you are also able to register for programs including our monthly labyrinth walks.

Upon arriving at the ecology center we do ask that you stop inside the barn.  This is so that you can sign and so that we know that there are individuals out walking the land or our labyrinth.  A donation of $2 is suggested per person who comes to visit our center.

 

The article, which was written by Margaret Quamme, can be read here.

Farm Stands

As it stands we are unsure if there will be any more farm markets held this year.  Due to the conditions this spring and summer, production of our gardens has been impacted.  Our first priority with our gardens is donation of fresh, healthy produce to those in need.  In the event that there is a farm market scheduled our website and Facebook page will be updated to reflect this.
