The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association is excited to explore the themes of diversity and justice during our 40th conference, "Just Farming: The Path Before Us." The event features an all-day Food and Farm School on Thursday, Feb. 14, and the conference itself runs Friday, Feb. 15-Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Dayton Convention Center.
Diversity is key to resilience in agriculture, important not only in what farmers grow, but in the farmers themselves. The pathway to a healthier food system includes diverse people working together. Thanks to generous funds from the Initiative for Food and AgriCultural Transformation (InFACT) and others, OEFFA is able to offer a limited number of scholarships to welcome people of color, particularly Ohio-based growers or producers who have not attended an OEFFA conference before, would not likely be in a position to attend without a scholarship, and whose attendance would bring new and diverse thought and experience to the conference.
To apply, fill out this short survey. Questions can be directed to Renee Hunt: (614) 947-1642, email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Scholarships will be awarded beginning the week of January 7.
