A recent grant award of $1,850 by Ohio Humanities has enabled the University of Findlay to host additional discussion groups: Nov. 3 and Nov. 10, from 4-5 p.m. in the university’s multipurpose room, 1000 N. Main St., Findlay. The discussions will review farming practices over the last two centuries and will examine the effect of technology on current agricultural processes.  There is no cost to attend. A prior discussion led by Deborah Fitzgerald, PhD, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Science, Technology, and Society program, led a prior discussion group Sept. 15 2016.

For more information, contact the local project director Christine Denecker at, 419-434-4429.
