Over the past 5 months, our staff has been on the road for tens of hours, driving hundreds of miles, talking to thousands of Ohioans, all about ONE small, but mighty, bean. The 2019 Ohio Soy Sustainable Summer program brought interactive bioeconomy education to five of Ohio’s great county fairs. Our team traveled to Paulding, Crawford, Union, Darke, and Morrow counties to speak with consumers about the emerging bioeconomy and soy-based technologies.

Every year, around the first week of June, school-busses and vans flood the rural backroads of Carroll County, Ohio, shuttling student leaders from all around the state to the banks of Leesville Lake, where they will attend Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum. The National FFA Organization seeks to develop the future leaders in science, business, technology, and Agriculture. FFA Members from Ohio’s 315 local chapters can attend one of five general camp sessions where they will participate in leadership development, conservation education, and outdoor recreation activities.

On May 18th, the Ohio State University’s West Campus welcomed visitors to celebrate scientific progress and sustainability, while providing a stage for participating departments and community partners to showcase their work. The Ohio Soy Sustainable Summer fit well within the mission of the event, as we again introduced consumers to the benefits of a biobased lifestyle. We also introduced a new activity at this event: Biobased Bubbles. In addition to our bioproducts identification activity, we allowed consumers to see our mission in action.
