    This workshop seeks to combine the worlds of art and science with a focus on the natural and anthropocene environment of the Queen City.

    10 selected local artists will have an opportunity to learn from Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and the Contemporary Arts Center, two sustainable leaders in Cincinnati.

    Through an orientation weekend and educational sessions, participants will gain knowledge from experts in the areas of low impact art making and local environmental issues. Artists will be given a modest stipend and be encouraged to use what they learn from these sessions to create a piece, or series of pieces, that are informed by science and inspired by the 2021 workshop concentration: “Origins”, with a focus on materials- native, invasive, old, new, natural, synthetic, recycled, upcycled.

    These experiences will culminate in each artist selecting one of their works created through this workshop to be featured in a two week long exhibit at MadTree Brewing in Oakley. You will have the option to allow your piece to be included in an auction, with total proceeds going to make this workshop possible for future years.

    Please note, you must be 18 years or older to participate.

    Contact Aly at alaughlin@cincycac.org with any questions.

    All participants must be available for the following days: June 12th AND 13th (Orientation weekend in Downtown Cincinnati and Camp Washington), July 19th OR 20th (Drop off art at Mad Tree), July 22nd (Opening for Exhibition at Mad Tree), August 5th OR August 6th (Potential art pick up if not sold in auction).

    At the end of the workshop, artists will choose a piece of their work created during this program to be shown in an exhibit, and to be auctioned for the continuation of this program. Any artists who do not wish to have their art auctioned have the right to abstain.

    Organization: Greenacres Foundation

    EDUCATION:

    GAF is a highly motivated service organization focused on using the assets of Greenacres to provide custom-designed hands-on active learning opportunities for children of all ages. All opportunities are customized to the needs of the visiting group which primarily consist of local school groups from K to 8. All school based programs are tied to the national and/or state standards so that they contribute to the success of the classroom teacher.

    In 1988 we focused on Environment Education, had one employee and provided hands-on programs about riparian zones for 60 children. Each year we provide programs based on the environment, generative agriculture, equine, and classical arts to over 32,000 visitors. Our programs are of the highest quality. They should be. Quality Quality Quality (QQQ) is a core value.

    Our dedication to our values: Grace, Good Neighbor Policy, and Green cannot be overstated. Our employees strive to be the best of the best and flourish in a team environment where outcomes are the result of teamwork. Greenacres is not just a place to work – it is a career, a lifestyle, and a place to exude passion for the Mission and Vision of our Founders – Louis and Louise Nippert. We are here to serve the community and change the lives of children.

    AGRICULTURE PRACTICES:

    Agriculture practices are on a continuum. Conventional agriculture, which makes up most of the production in the US, is driven by yields leading to an input-intensive, specialized approach focusing on soil chemistry rather than soil biology (i.e. soil as a living, biological ecosystem). Organic agriculture, currently less than 2% of American farmland, varies in scale and practice – ranging from soil health-centric to degenerative in nature. Organic agriculture, at scale, is likewise dependent on external inputs, albeit in natural forms such as manure, compost, and approved pesticides and herbicides. Heavy tillage – which leads to the loss of top soil, interrupts the water cycle, and negatively impacts soil biology – is often a requirement for organic crop production. The goal of regenerative agriculture is to replenish the health of degraded soils by following a set of soil health principles including minimal tillage, increased biodiversity and year-round plant cover. A key aspect of regenerative practices is integrating livestock into cropping systems – a reversal of the segregation and specialization brought forth by conventional agriculture. A key difference between regenerative and organic/sustainable practices is the ability to minimize the requirement for external inputs. A Generative approach to farming focuses on biological cycles, not chemical inputs, to increase the productivity of our soils. Through this approach we continuously build health and resiliency into our land and production system. Greenacres chooses this path because we do not inherit the land from our grandparents, we borrow it from our children…and we must repay that debt with interest.

    Objective:

    Greenacres is a working farm located on 400+ acres in Brown County, Ohio. We are looking for a hardworking and quality minded Farm Manager who will continue to add value to our mission.
