Local community benefiting from microfarm project at Ohio State Mansfield
As a forestry major, Kyle Dues found a perfect fit at Ohio State Mansfield. This campus is set on a 640-acre wooded lot, he says. What better place is there for a forestry major to go to school but a 640-acre wooded lot? Once on campus, Dues discovered more reasons to be engaged with the Mansfield campus. He connected with faculty member Kent Kip Curtis, an associate professor of environmental history, who was piloting a microfarm project on campus. Dues started interning at the microfarm and later became its interim coordinator. What Dues didnt know at the time is that the microfarm, which has an over-arching goal of creating a model for urban agriculture that built and aggregated the produce from additional microfarms, was on the verge of a breakthrough.

In this talk, Pariser will re-introduce his original thesis, discuss what's changed since he first wrote the book, and most importantly describe the growing toolset of ideas and interventions that are working to bring people back into contact with each other and with reality.
