      Full Council Meetings are open to the public and provide an opportunity to network, learn about being an effective food system advocate, and be involved in strategically prioritizing the regional good food policy agenda.

      Council Objectives:

      • Create a forum that brings together stakeholders from all segments of the food system to generate new relationships and share best practices.
      • Initiate research and recommend policies that increase food security in communities as well as social and economic opportunities for food producers, distributors, and consumers throughout the region.
      • Advocate for food security through a regional food system development agenda at the city, county and regional levels.
      • Serve as a resource to the community to assist in local food system development programs and projects related to health and nutrition, land use, food waste recovery, community food assessment and local purchasing.

        Saturday Stream Snapshot takes place on the second Saturday of each month from March-November. Water samples are collected by volunteers from around the Little Miami River watershed before 10:00 am on Saturday morning, and subsequent water chemical testing takes place at the Greenacres Water Quality Education Center from 10:30 am – 3:00 pm.

        • Bowyer Farm in Mason

        Organization: Cincinnati Zoo

        The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and Klosterman Baking Company have partnered up once again to bring back the popular Native Plant Sales, this year with an expanded schedule.

        Beginning on April 24, events will be held 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on 10 dates at Bowyer Farm in Mason. These events will run through October.

        Similar to last year, advance registration is required for each plant sale to ensure COVID safety protocols, according to a media release. Each shopping slot will last 30 minutes, and registrations usually sell out.

        The Native Plant Sale will have 10 dates that offer a wide range of native plants at reasonable prices, the media release says. All of the plants are grown by the Cincinnati Zoo horticultural team and sold to gardeners and supporters of the local "Save the Bees" campaign. The sale is meant to encourage residents to “plant pollinator-friendly plants native to our region,” the release explains.

        The plant sale is part of Cincinnati-based Klosterman Baking Company’s “Save Our Bees” campaign, which is in its third year. Klosterman relies on honey to create many of their products, but over the past few years, there has been a decline in the honey bee population.

        Together, Klosterman and the Cincinnati Zoo have established beehives at Bowyer Farm, a 529-acre property where the Native Plant Sale takes place. Any purchase of Klosterman Rich ‘n Good Honey hamburger buns, hot dog buns and rolls supports the partnership between Klosterman and the Zoo and helps raise awareness about the campaign.

        The Native Plant Sales will take place April 24, May 9, May 22, June 12, June 26, July 10, August 14, September 11, September 25 and October 9.

        Urban Stream Adventure with the Mill Creek Yacht Club

        Organization: Mill Creek Alliance

        Paddling with the seasoned guides of the Mill Creek Yacht Club is the best way to experience the wonders of the Mill Creek while learning about our long-abused but surprisingly resurgent urban stream. Join the Commodore and other Yacht Club veterans on Saturday, June 19th, as we explore the Mill Creek in our boats. On this urban stream adventure you will gain panoramic views of stream channelization, enjoy the beauty of tree-lined riparian corridor, and be a part of a MCYC Paddle/Peddle Stream Adventure.

        [Participants will paddle one direction and either pedal or walk the other direction for this trip, eliminating the need to shuttle from start to finish in a vehicle. It takes a little more effort and time but makes for a very nice day on the creek, by both land and water.]

        The paddling voyage will commence in Northside near Mitchell Avenue and finish at the Yellow Bridge at Mill Creek Road, a distance of about 5 miles. We will spend about 3 hours on the water with educational stops along the way, plus about an hour of combined time on the land before and after paddling.  Water level may create need for last minute changes in plan and/or dragging of canoes at times.

        Registration for the paddle is open now through noon on Thursday, June 18th, or until all available seats have been reserved. Register today, seats are limited! 

        See below for important safety information before registering*.

        Prepare for an unforgettable adventure on the Mill Creek. Contact Linda Keller at the Mill Creek Alliance at lkeller@themillcreekalliance.org or 513-563-8800 with questions about the event.

        Stroll through the garden as we forage blooms and learn the secrets of harvesting flowers for food with Master Gardener, Allyson Ernst.

Now Allyson shares her knowledge with others and encourages them to experiment in their own kitchens.

        Forest Bathing At Long Branch Farm & Trails 

        Sunday June 20

        1:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

        Preregistration required for all participants. This is an ADULT class offering. Keenly interested youth ages 13 and up may attend with a parent.
         
        Registered program participants should meet at the white Creekside Barn at Long Branch Farm & Trails, 6926 Gaynor Road, Goshen, OH 45122. 

        Forest Bathing, also called Shinrin-yoku, is a practice of immersing yourself in nature that was developed by the Japanese to relieve stress. This guided Forest Bathing walk offers an opportunity to slow down and awaken the senses which allows you to quietly take in nature’s gifts.

        Participants should be prepared to arrive early (10 minutes early recommended). The facilitator will head out on the trail promptly at 10 minutes after posted program start time. If you have never been to the Long Branch Farm and Trails location, please plan to leave plenty of extra time to allow you to find the site, park, use restrooms, etc. Forest bathing is a sequential program - late arrivals cannot be inserted into the program.

        About the guide: Ellen Foley is a Forest Therapy Guide certified with The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. Ellen’s experiences finding solace in nature inspire her to guide others in mindfully walking through and connecting with the natural world.

        What to expect: This hike will take place entirely outdoors. Forest Bathing experiences follow a standard sequence that includes quiet, slow, attentive walking, guided sensory experiences, individual mindful time, opportunities for group sharing, and a closing tea ceremony using foraged ingredients. We will be standing or sitting on the ground during the periods of sharing. A limited number of three-legged stools and sit-pads are available. Consider bringing your own lightweight camp chair if you have one.

        How to dress: We will be out on the trails and moving slowly. Please dress in layers to ensure proper warmth and comfort. This program runs rain or shine.

        What to bring: Bring something to sit on (light folding chair, flexible cutting board, old raincoat, stadium cushion, a large plastic bag, etc.). 

        Members $12; nonmembers $21. Online tickets purchased for nonmembers include admission.

Please pay close attention to this class location as this takes place at Cincinnati Nature Center

        Shrubs can serve as part of a privacy hedge, a backdrop, or a specimen plant. By choosing native species, our shrubs can also be put to work as pollinator plants, host plants for caterpillars, fruit and seed producers for birds, cover and nesting sites for birds, and even as edible landscaping. In this on-the-trail field class, we’ll showcase a range of native shrubs and provide tips on their maintenance.

        Organization: Third Sun Solar

        Join Third Sun Solar and Green Energy Ohio for the Climate Action Film Festival June 21-24 and Panel Discussion on Thursday, June 24 from 7-8 pm

        The Climate Action Film Festival was originally developed and produced by SunCommon, a New York-based solar installer, and has been shared with organizations and activists nationally to spark inspiration and create action on Climate Change. Third Sun Solar is the Ohio host for this event, and GEO is proud to partner with them as part of our climate change initiative.

        The Festival includes a moderated panel discussion on Thursday, June 24 from 7:00-8:00 pm featuring Third Sun Solar's non-profit partners Green Energy Ohio, The Ohio Environmental Council, and Rural Action. Tickets are available in advance for $10 or a “pay what you can” donation. Proceeds from ticket sales will be shared by the three non-profit organizations.

        The films curated in the Climate Action Film Festival were selected to amplify voices and inspire further action. The following selection of five films has a total runtime of 50 minutes.

        Imagine for 1 Minute: A one-minute meditation imagining a better future.

        Future Grandma: This short film follows the story of a grandmother risking arrest in support of government action to address climate change.

        Shepherd’s Song: A young farmer embarks on a new path with her nomadic flock of sheep, restoring ecosystems and preventing wildfires along the way.

        Invasion: Invasion is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet'suwet'en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.

        Matagi Mālohi (Strong Winds): The Pacific Climate Warriors tell the story of their journey to uplift their people and shape a narrative that paints them not as victims of the climate crisis but as leaders, healers, nurturers, artists, gardeners, growers, seafarers and navigators.

        Organization: AIA Cincinnati

        This program is designed to help architects discuss the many benefits of implementing a “negotiated bid” project delivery with their clients. A moderated panel discussion composed of an A/E, a contractor, and an owner who will give real-world testimony for the “good, bad and ugly” of implementing this approach.

        As opposed to traditional “design-bid-build” project delivery, a “negotiated bid” approach assembles the owner-designer-builder team day one of a project. This promotes early buy-in/commitment from all members of the Project Team and results in:

        • More genuine collaboration
        • Streamlined pre-construction process
        • Early confirmation of budget, quality & schedule expectations
        • Greatly reduces risk for all project stakeholders

        A “negotiated bid” approach can be compatible with nearly all other traditional project delivery methods, including: design-bid-build, design-build, CM-R, etc. Regardless of the contractual relationships between the various members of the Project Team, the key element is that the team members are brought on board from day one. This is usually best accomplished by first inviting a limited number of potential A/E firms and contractors to undergo a brief RFQ evaluation process, by which the owner selects the team based upon both objective (i.e. “qualifications”) and subjective (i.e. “fit”) requirements.

        Register by 3pm on June 22 to attend.


        Learning Objectives

         At the end of this program, participants will:

        • Be able to present to prospective Clients the budget, schedule and quality advantages inherent within a negotiated bid approach.
        • Understand how negotiated bid project delivery serves to reduce risk for all members of the Project Team, including Owner, Designer and Builder.
        • Understand how a negotiated bid strategy is compatible with any other “traditional” project delivery method, including Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build, CM at Risk, etc.
        • Be able to develop internal processes and procedures for streamlining their own firm’s project delivery method.

        Registration is now open for the 2021 Green Schools Conference (GSC), hosted virtually June 28–29. GSC convenes all the players who make green schools a reality: the people who lead, operate, build and teach in schools. Every year, hundreds of leaders and advocates come together to work toward making visible, measurable and lasting progress toward the three pillars of green schools: environmental impact, health impact, and environmental and sustainability literacy.

        After a year characterized by dramatic change, GSC is an especially timely and critical hub for the green schools community to come together to share success stories, adaptions and strategies for continuing to empower our students and create healthy, sustainable places to learn in this new landscape.

        This year’s program will include:

        • Mainstage programming: Hear from inspiring keynote speakers and participate in a student-designed session geared toward empowering youth sustainability leaders.
        • Education sessions: Learn about practical strategies for healthy schools and pandemic response, building design for sustainability education, expanding learning environments beyond school walls, and much more, and collaborate with presenters and fellow attendees on actionable solutions.
        • Peer-to-peer networking: Hear from leading experts on priority topics facing the green schools community—such as incorporating sustainability into everyday curriculum or designing for social equity—and join peer breakout groups to discuss your experiences and ideas.
        • Award ceremony: Celebrate winners of the Best of Green Schools and Green Apple Awards.

        We will start by addressing important Health & Wellness both as a foundational principal to USGBC and its intrinsic link to LEED certification. Two regional thought leaders will offer their insights on biophilic lighting design and indoor air quality, then we will follow-up with interactive breakouts. These speaker-led sessions will challenge participants to think about how we, as industry professionals, can change how we personally approach our jobs with the health & wellness of our building occupants in mind. How can we change our companies? How can our companies change our clients? How can our clients change their decision-making processes that present the barriers to zero waste? Join us to get the ball rolling, together!

        Green Umbrella's Faith Communities Go Green Team invites you to a webinar on Reducing Single Use Plastics (SUPs)


        DATE: June  29, 2021 

        TIME: 7:00-8:00pm


        DESCRIPTION: 


        Learn some practical alternatives to using Single Use Plastic (aka SUPs) in your home or faith community.


        WHY:


        Overuse of plastics harms creation – both the natural world and human health.

        We know that the production of plastic through “fracking” and “cracker plants” pollutes the air, water, and land in our region and threatens our health.

        We also know that the disposal of plastics contaminates our environment and the beauty of creation.


        So what’s an ordinary, conscientious person to do? Of course we can recycle some plastic, and it’s better to recycle plastic when possible than to just throw it in the garbage or litter the ground and water…BUT less than 10% of plastics get recycled.


        SOLUTION:


        It’s much better to reduce buying and using plastic which decreases the demand for plastic and the amount needing to be recycled.


        HOW:

        1. Learn 7 lifestyle changes to reduce your need for plastic products
        2. Learn 10 substitutes for plastic packaging 
        3. Learn what plastics can be recycled and what cannot 
        4. Educate yourself further and multiply your efforts by becoming involved
          in the July Eco-Challenge!

        Register for the free webinar and then join us for the Plastic Free EcoChallenge throughout the month of July!

        Green Umbrella's Faith Communities Go Green Team invites you to take the Plastic Free EcoChallenge throughout the month of July!

        • Have you considered using reusable grocery bags, but have not remembered to take them out of your car before going to the grocery store?
        • Have you thought of reducing your plastics usage, but have been unsure of where and how to start to make the biggest impact?
        • Have you been interested in learning what happens to the plastics once you put them in your recycling bin, but haven’t had the time or motivation to do so?

        If so, you are not alone. Many of us have the best of intentions, but have just not formed these good, environmentally-friendly habits yet.

        Joining the Plastic Free EcoChallenge can help you form some of these good habits.

        Our team “Cincinnati Area Faith Communities Go Green” will be one of several hundreds of teams from all over the world, competing to see who can make the biggest impact in reducing their plastics usage.

        The goal of EcoChallenge is to help us change our behavior towards a greener lifestyle, while doing so in a fun, collaborative, and mildly competitive environment.

        You can choose your level of involvement. You can sign up for, say, one one-time activity that you may spend an hour doing in the entire month. Or, you can sign up for a few daily activities and some one-time activities.

        Here are the steps you need to take to join our team:

        1. Register for our team using the link below:

          https://plasticfree.ecochallenge.org/participants/join?referral_code=a924524e-f85f-4d26-bb72-6b75ab1ecf0f&team_invitation=true

        2. Next, you can sign up for whichever challenges that interest you from a list of many challenges listed on the website. These could be one-time or daily activities.

        Throughout the entire month of July, when you complete an activity, you can go on the EcoChallenge website and mark it as “done.” Our team gets points for every completed action.

        We can also communicate with our teammates on things that we learn along the way.

        If you have any questions, you can reach Fred Desai at 513-560-0577 or at freddesai1001@gmail.com.

        And if you haven't already, sign up to receive communications from the Faith Communities Go Green team at https://greenumbrella.org/faith/

        Cintrifuse: Repackaging The Future

        Organization: Cintrifuse

        The rapid acceleration of sustainability in every sector of our economy and society is potentially transformative for Greater Cincinnati. It is creating scalable opportunities to drive both near- and long-term investment, business and job creation, talent magnetism, and competitive advantage as a region.

        One fast-growing area in which Cintrifuse is developing concrete strategies for local startup growth is sustainable product packaging. Startups everywhere are not only pushing a wave of material science innovation around products — for example, new Cintrifuse member “Responsible Products” has launched in less than one year over 70 SKUs of highly biodegradable plastics and take-out containers— but also pushing the frontiers of so-called so-called “multi-sensory experiences.” Thanks to next-generation labels, voice activation, gamification, augmented and virtual reality, and the digital wonders of radical transparency, packaging is coming to life in ways we never dreamed of before.

        The schedule including the speaker and startup list will be released shortly. Register now for the early bird rate!

        Please contact kathryn@cintrifuse.com for sponsorship and startup expo opportunities.

        Organization: Adventure Crew

        Ohio River Paddlefest will return to the water for its 20th year on Saturday, August 7, 2021. To mark the anniversary, event organizers are adding exciting new features to the hallmark event.

        “After taking Paddlefest virtual in 2020, we can’t wait to get back on the water for our 20th year,” said Miriam Wise, associate director of the nonprofit Adventure Crew, which produces the event. “With a second paddling option and an expanded Friday night party, 2021 promises to be the best Paddlefest yet!”

        Dreamed up by friends who wanted to paddle together, the first Ohio River Paddlefest took place in 2001 with 275 paddlers. It has since grown to become the nation’s largest paddling celebration, attracting some 2,000 paddlers for a 9-mile float down the Ohio River the first Saturday in August. The paddle is bookended by a Friday night pre-party and post-paddle Finish Line Festival on Saturday.

        Special for its 20th year, the event will feature a half-distance (approximately 4.5-mile) paddle for those who’d like to try paddling the Ohio without committing to the full distance.

        “We hope the shorter distance will appeal to families and others who’d prefer a shorter adventure,” Wise said.

        Also new this year is an expanded Friday night pre-party. The all-new Outdoors for All Expo will feature exhibits and demos from local parks, outdoor outfitters, adventure experts and environmentally minded organizations, plus live music, local beer and food trucks. Attendees can ride in a voyageur canoe, hang out in the hammock lounge or test ride a bike from a local outfitter. Held at Schmidt Recreation Complex, the site of Saturday’s Paddlefest launch, the event is free and open to the public and runs from 4-9:30 p.m. Organizations interested in exhibiting can apply on the event website.

        On Saturday, both paddling routes start at Schmidt Recreation Complex, 2944 Humbert Ave. in the East End. The 4.5-mile paddle finishes at the Public Landing in Downtown Cincinnati, while the 9-mile paddle continues to Gilday Recreation Complex, 3540 Southside Ave. in Riverside. Participants can use their own boats, or they can rent a kayak or canoe with advance registration. Those who travel to Gilday can enjoy the post-paddle Finish Line Festival, with a “Conservation Corridor” of exhibits, plus food trucks and local beer.

        Event organizers will follow all state COVID-19 guidelines to ensure a safe and fun event.

        Registration is now open. The cost for the 9-mile paddle is $55 for adults; $25 for youth (17 and under); the 4.5-mile paddle is $50 for adults; $20 for youth. Prices increase after June 30.

        All proceeds benefit Adventure Crew, which provides free outdoor recreation opportunities to city teens in 24 high schools in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

        “Your Paddlefest participation helps Adventure Crew get teens outdoors for activities such as kayaking, biking and hiking,” Wise said. “So a fun day paddling with us is also a way to share your love of the outdoors with kids who might not otherwise have access to nature.”

        St. Elizabeth Healthcare will return as the presenting sponsor of Paddlefest in 2021. Event organizers are currently accepting additional sponsorships.

        About Paddlefest

        The Ohio River Paddlefest is recognized as the nation’s largest paddling celebration, with 2,000 participants traveling up to nine miles through downtown Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky in canoes, kayaks and other human-powered craft. Established in 2001, the event, which is held the first Saturday in August each year, is a project of Adventure Crew. For more information, visit www.ohioriverpaddlefest.org.
