Featured Panelists:

PETER HUTTINGER is the Director of the Turner Farm Community Garden Program and an advocate for connecting people to their food through collaborative work and innovative urban land use with an emphasis on biological agricultural practices, experiential learning, and civic engagement.

A resident of Cincinnati for over 35 years, and a vegetable gardener for over twenty-five years, Peter is interested in working with traditional organic farming best-practices but also exploring the evolving techniques of Permaculture and regenerative agriculture practices and how they can provide healthy food for neighborhoods and encourage healthy lifestyles. Through neighborhood-centered initiatives the goal is to create urban gardens that provide in-depth, immersive hands-on gardening experiences for participants and creating opportunities for diverse communities to learn and share their cultural heritages.

Peter is also co-owner of Homeadow Song, where he works with an independent group of gardeners, artists and educators developing programs that center on home-based education and agriculture, ethical stewardship of land, sustainable architecture, and contemporary art practices.
