Wood County Ag-VentureA Self-Driving Farm Tour throughout Wood County  

Agriculture is a vital industry in Wood County. Fields of corn, soybeans, and wheat are seen as we drive through the county or even in our own backyards, yet we know little of how the products are grown and what they are used for.  Products found on the store shelves are made from local products from local farms.  Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., the Wood Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with county organizations and businesses to host a Wood County AG-Venture Self-Driving Farm Tour. 

Local agriculture industry leaders are opening their homes and businesses throughout Wood County to highlight Ohio’s #1 Industry – agriculture.   Visit the stops through-out the day at your own pace to sit in farm equipment, pet farm animals, talk to farmers, and taste some farm food, and learn what agriculture is in Wood County.

The Ag-Venture stops include:

Vetter Family Farms, 19604 Mercer Rd., Bowling Green, OH 43402

Hirzel Canning, 411 Lemoyne Rd., Northwood, OH 43619

Luckey Farmers, 11330 Avenue Rd., Perrysburg, OH 43551

Moser Farms, 24062 Hull Prairie Rd., Perrysburg, OH 43551

Pioneer Seed, 15180 Henry Wood County Rd., Grand Rapids, OH 43522

Schooner Farmers, 14890 Otsego Pike, Weston, OH 43569

Black Swamp Ag, 12057 Mitchell Rd., Bowling Green, OH 43402

Don and I are both over the moon thrilled at the turnout we had at our first ever Lavender Festival & Open House. It was amazing. Despite the scorching heat the crowd was estimated at over 600 people!!! Thank you so much to all of our vendors, staff, volunteers and visitors. It was a lot of work but so worth it! We're already planning for next year! 

Thank you all so much!

Solstice Yoga Retreat - June 23rd 9am - 3pm

Enjoy a day of yoga, meditation and journaling with Amanda. Bring a sack lunch. Becky will be sharing info on making herbal teas and will also read your tea leaves. It will be a wonderful day! 

Located on the glorious Schooner Farms, we will honor this seasonal celebration with a morning of All-Levels Yoga. When I say All-Levels, I mean it; ANYONE can join this practice and feel the benefits of yoga. We will move our bodies and observe how joy spreads like sunshine! After a short break, we'll have a lovely tea talk and tasting with the knowledgable and gracious Becky Schooner. During lunch break, there will journaling or you can choose to tour the lavender labyrinth. We'll close the day with a delicious Restorative Yoga practice and meditation.

A day devoted to yourself provides so much inner peace and clarity. It's a reset button and a way to begin summer with a lighter mind and spirit. I warmly invite you to join us for this day of self care and self love. In a season busy with parties, travel, concerts, festivals, graduations, and more, what better way to create a cocoon filled with "me time"? That, my love, is the greatest gift of yoga--it's a path to you, the bestest, loveliest, more awesome you. This is my favorite yoga event of the year. Please be sure to reserve your spot today because they fill quickly and space is limited.
