Friends - When the agriculture community gets together to solve a problem, good things happen. As we make plans for the seventh annual Cultivating a Cure, I get the feeling we might be creating a new tradition of excellent collaboration and teamwork. As a result of your participation, the Ohio agricultural leadership community was able to support cancer treatment and prevention research at The Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University with a contribution of more than $350,000 over the last six years.


This year’s event will be held Sunday, August 27, at the Ohio State University's Waterman Farm in Columbus, Ohio. Please accept this invitation for you and your guest, and share this opportunity with your network of friends, family and community partners. Children also are welcome to this family-friendly event with activities for all ages. Our goal is to involve as many people as possible in our efforts to connect as an agricultural community and recognize our responsibility to support efforts to find a cure to a disease that has impacted many of our lives and families.


We hope to see you August 27 at the Waterman Farm in Columbus.

Ohio Agriculture Connecting for Issues and a Cure

WE’RE GROWING GOOD…

For over three decades Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation has been committed to driving community change, stimulating new ideas, and engaging audiences in a conversation around sustainable agriculture.


We know that it takes a collaborative approach to growing a vibrant food system. That’s why we’re building unique partnerships by investing in local programs committed to addressing Ohio’s agricultural challenges. To date more than $2 million has been granted to projects that focus on agricultural education, environment and economic issues.


We strive to support the next generation of agriculture producers, scientists, and business and community leaders. By providing scholarships and professional development opportunities, we’re supporting leaders breaking new ground in agriculture.


The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation is proud to support OSUCCC's innovative approaches to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer with the hope that research will lead to a cure in our lifetime.
