 Since 1950 over 7 million acres of Ohio farmland have been lost to urban sprawl

Although the term Urban Sprawl was coined in the 1930’s, by the ‘70’s, it was a hot topic, as increasingly more rural areas, and farmland, were divided up and paved over into strip malls and subdivisions.

This spreading ring around our cities where urban sprawl is happening is officially known as the Rural-Urban Fringe.  Today on County Lines, producer Renee Wilde takes us there.

This year WYSO and Tecumseh Land Trust sponsored Living on the Land, an essay contest inviting writers of all ages to reflect on what home and land mean to them. Rose Tyler won honorable mention in the high school category.

The water is a murky blue, and each time our canoe propels further, the rippling trail behind me delicately braids the water and then falls loose, like when I take out the braid in my own hair.

Not everyone connects with the land in the same way. With modern technology, it is nearly impossible to live on the land like our ancestors did. However, I have found my own unique way through the sport of rowing.
