For any community to remain healthy and thriving, its residents must have access to healthy eating options. This can be challenging in small towns, even those that have an agriculturally rich heritage.

In Columbus, we have chosen to address healthy eating issues, particularly the issue of food insecurity, in a threefold manner:

  1. A Community Garden
  2. A Container Garden Program
  3. A Farmers Market

Check out the PowerPoint below to see how these concepts were introduced to the community several months ago, then check back here often for updates on the progress of each of these initiatives.
