Farm Runoff and Ohio's Waterways

May 9, 2014

10:00 Ann and her guests are live this hour from the Chadwick Arboretum Plant Sale! Spring is when local farms kick into high gear, but the runoff from fertilizers can create big problems for Ohio's waterways. Just last year, some of Ohio's beaches were closed due to high algae levels. We'll talk about how industries and individuals can embrace lower-impact agriculture. Guests

  • Dr. Andy Ward, OSU professor of Food, Agriculture and Biological Engineering
  • Adam Sharp, Ohio Farm Bureau
  • Kate Wilson, co-founder of Oakland Nursery’s educational program

Event Friday and Saturday, May 9 & 10, Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens holds their annual plant sale
