Ohio

FOR RENT: In March of 2017, the Arthur Morgan Institute of Community Solutions purchased a 128 acre farm just outside Yellow Springs, Ohio. The goals were to protect and restore the Jacoby Creek wetland, to
educate the public about regenerative land use, and to promote the local food economy. The farm will
host the non-profit’s office, the production of biological soil amendments, and a barn event venue.
Around 65 acres have been set aside for wetland restoration and 45 will be available for farmland
rentals. Community Solutions values strong local food systems and recognizes the many challenges that small and mid-size local food growers face. One common issue is affordable, secure, and long-term
access to farmland. The aim is to provide a place for prospective farmers to earn a living, and in turn Community Solutions will see that their land is cared for and their community has greater access to fresh healthy food.   Contact Julia or call 937-767-2161.   1/5/18
