FOOD DIALOGUES: TOLEDO Balancing food production and clean water

Buckeye Farm News

The 2014 Toledo water crisis drew worldwide attention to a crucial question: How do we balance our need for clean water with our need for abundant food? A diverse panel of experts will discuss the environmental, agricultural, social and economic aspects of this critical topic May 28 in Toledo from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ohio Farm Bureau helped obtain a grant from the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance for the event, which also is sponsored by the Ohio Corn Marketing Program, Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program and Ohio Soybean Council. The event will be live streamed on the Internet. Visit ofbf.org for log-in information near the date of the event.
