City farm on Columbus’ Hilltop established to broaden

The Mid-Ohio Farm on the Hilltop, seen in an undated photo, will begin an expansion project this month that will add a farmer's market for low-income families and three new greenhouses.

Hoping to reap what they sow, Mid-Ohio Farm officials expect even more full bellies and enlightened minds as an expansion job begins this month. 

A program within the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, the initiative is a 7-acre urban farm centered on the Hilltop that grows fresh new make, presents agricultural education and promotes special farming procedures.

Additions to the farm — including a farmer’s market for reduced-income families and three new greenhouses — are established to open following wintertime, along with improved farming training for all ages.

“It will develop hundreds of countless numbers of lbs . of fresh develop to be distributed to the Hilltop,” Chris Moscato, senior challenge manager for the Mid-Ohio Farm, mentioned. “The farm actually is inspired to handle the root causes of poverty and lift up our shoppers.”
