See what goes on at the Agriculture and Family Education Center!

2014 Farm Foliage Tour

There is so much going on at the Agriculture & Family Education Center and it is all in your own backyard. Whether you are exploring our beautiful flower garden or planning a wedding there is something here for everyone.

The land was donated by The Delphi Packard Company and developed by the Trumbull County Commissioners in 2002 as a place to educate residents on its 17 acres of natural habitat, as well as a location to feature programs and events that highlight agriculture, gardening, recreation, environmental or outdoor education. Also on the grounds are the Ohio State Extension/ Master Gardeners Research and Demonstration Garden and Children’s Garden.

This center was built to be a one stop location for those in the agriculture industry and to house a large meeting/ training room for family educational programming. Several federal, state and local agencies are located at the center: Farm Service Agency, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Ohio State University Trumbull County Extension, and the Trumbull Soil & Water Conservation District.

A building and grounds advisory committee consists of representatives of the center’s five agencies, the Mayor of Cortland, County Engineers office, Christmas Tree Growers, Cortland Rotary, Farm Bureau, Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, Food & Agriculture Council, Master Gardeners, Tourism Bureau, 4-H and other individuals interested in the center.  The committee approves activities and develops procedures regarding the use and maintenance of the facility. Many events happen at the center and in conjunction with the center's agencies and organizations, so please check the events tab for the lastest information.
