Keynote: Greenhorns & Grayhorns
The recently published book, Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmer Movement, includes nine “dispatches” from Oregon farmers and ranchers. These authors represent the growing youth movement in Oregon agriculture. The keynote session for the conference features four of the Oregon authors and greenhorn farmers representing different regions of the state: Sarahlee Lawrence, Rainshadow Organics, Terrebonne; Josh Volk, Slow Hand Farm, Portland; Cory Carmen, Carman Ranch, Wallowa; Teresa Retzlaff, 46 North Farm, Olney. Moderating the panel is well-known organic seed grower and inveterate grayhorn, Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed, Philomath. The session will include readings, lessons learned, wisdom and more than a few laughs.
$50 per person or $90 for 2 people from the same farm.
