Ohio Environmental Council members have always shown us that we are stronger, smarter, and more effective when we work together.
What does our advocacy in action look like?
It looks like securing the strongest climate legislation in U.S. history… Building a movement to protect Ohio’s wild and wonderful forests… Strengthening critical drinking water protections for Ohio families… Taking bold legal action to ensure Ohioans’ right to fair representation at the Statehouse and on Capitol Hill… Adopting innovative policies at the local level to ensure healthier environments for our neighbors and friends… and SO much more.
Join us virtually for the 2022 Ohio Environmental Council Annual Meeting to hear from our team about our recent successes and our plans ahead:

Urban farmers seeking to grow or start their businesses face many of the same legal issues as rural growers, while also encountering challenges unique to their urban location. Like other businesses, urban farmers should take care to form a legal structure that suits their goals, protects them and their assets from liability, and prepares for safe and legal labor management. Central State University Cooperative Extension specialist and experienced lawyer Ambrose Moses III will discuss the nuances and key considerations for building your farm’s legal framework, so you can grow with piece of mind. There will be plenty of time for questions, so come prepared to articulate your biggest challenges.
Cost and Registration: $15. Price includes light refreshments. Pre-registration is required by September 12 and space is limited to 25 people.
