Dryland Farming

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! 

When: Next Tuesday, January 12th, and the second Tuesday of every month

What Time: Doors open at 5:30 for mixing and mingling, Presentation begins at 6:30

Where: Holocene (1001 SE Morrison) in Portland

Cost: FREE, open to the public and all ages

The topic changes each month but the focus is always on food, farming, policy and the connections in between. Read more about InFARMation and see upcoming and previous topics here>>>
