Portland InFARMation (and Beer!) is every second Tuesday of the month at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison). Doors open at 5:30, Presentation begins at 6:30.
Tuesday, January 12th 5:30-8:30
Oregon summers are becoming hotter and drier. Water rights are difficult to come by, and wells run dry.
As a result, farmers are returning to the age-old method of growing food without additional irrigation. Not only are producers dabbling in dryland farming, but consumers are learning the benefits through the instensified flavors that dry-farmed crops flaunt.
Our panel for Tuesday, January 12th includes:
Amy Garrett- Instructor for the OSU Extension Service Small Farms Program serving Benton, Linn, and Polk counties.
Jeff Fairchild- Produce buyer for New Seasons Market.
Anne Berblinger- farmer and co-owner of Gales Meadow Farm.
Join the Conversation and Bring Your Friends & Family!
