Vicki is a steward of Earth Heart Farms in Oak Harbor, Ohio. In 1883, Vicki's great-grandparents purchased 80 acres in rural Oak Harbor and started a family farm. The land never the left the family, and Harder-Thorne is now the fourth-generation owner. Although the land remains in the family, its focus has significantly changed from agricultural business to conservation. Learn about this special program and how schools can participate.
