South Central Power

Ohio Cooperative Living Magazine

In March 2017, Country Living was renamed Ohio Cooperative Living to better reflect the intent of the magazine — a business publication — and the content — co-op news and Ohio flavor. In addition, the magazine has a fresh look and feel, in line with modern magazines.
