CHARDON, Ohio — Farm representative Michelle Bandy-Zalatoris will join farmers Andy Miller and Marvin Hershberger April 14 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the next installment of the Geauga Park District’s program Food: What Do Farms Have to Do With It, which is dedicated to discussions about local sustainable agriculture.

Location

The program will be held at The West Woods Nature Center, 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township.

Geauga Family Farms is a small group of family farms working as a cooperative to nourish the local growing community through one of the largest CSA programs in Ohio. Geauga Family Farms started in 2005 to save farmland and its way of life by capturing a portion of the $8 million spent annually on food in northeast Ohio, and today counts more than 800 members in their summer and winter CSA programs.
