The Union of Concerned Scientists Brainstorm Policy Solutions with Our Harvest


Three representatives from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) visited with Our Harvest worker-owners, board members and regional politicos at Bahr Farm in October. UCS is a bi-partisan organization applying scientific principles of sharing information, seeking truth, and letting findings guide conclusions.  One of their areas of focus is Food and Agriculture.  They connected with Phil Amadon, a founder and board member of Our Harvest, at an event last summer which led to the invitation to visit OHC at Bahr Farm. Their visit occurred on a beautiful October day in Cincinnati, where a tour of the farm led to a brainstorming session about the next farm bill (4 years from now) and what help and inclusion would look like for small farm operations like OHC.  We ended the visit with a delicious dinner on the farm, and agreed to stay connected and look for collaborative opportunities in the future.
