H2Ohio is coming to Marion County! H2Ohio was designed to address the water quality issues in Ohio. The Ohio General Assembly was the first to fund this movement in an attempt to improve water quality. This program works with farmers to improve conservation efforts, nutrient management practices, reduce runoff, incorporate phosphorus filtering wetlands, manure management and crop rotation will be implemented through the program funding.

All Marion County farmers are eligible for the H2Ohio program. Pre-recorded meetings with more information will be provided on July 20, 22, 28 and 29. Sign-up for H2Ohio will begin July 15 and run through Aug. 31. Producers can sign-up for no more than four years of practice payments. 

For more information, contact Marion County SWCD at 740-387-1314.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
