Solutions From The Land, a national collaboration led by forestry and conservation leaders, has teamed up with Ohio State University’s Initiative for Food and Agricultural Transformation (InFACT) and other partners to coordinate a 3-5 year project for Ohio farmers. The project aims to assist farmers throughout the state in adapting to the changing climate through improving the resiliency of their farms in addition to increasing their capacity to support local communities through producing nutritious foods. The initiative was facilitated by the establishment of strategic partnerships among various stakeholder groups within the food system whose focus areas include food policy, water quality, and sustainable agriculture projects.
With the initiative launching this week, the Steering Committee will hold its inaugural meeting and review the goals, objectives, expected outcomes, timeline, and plan of work for the project.
