InFARMation (and Beer!)

February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Land, Soil, Water, and Farmers: The Future of Sustainable Agriculture in Central Oregon

What does it mean to be farming in the midst of climate change? Can agriculture be a part of the solution? What is the community’s role in building a sustainable food system in Oregon? InFARMation (& Beer!) tackles these questions and more! Join Friends of Family Farmers (FoFF) and Jackson’s Corner for a fun and informative night of panelists and experts in sustainable agriculture as they address land access, soil health, agritourism, and more. FoFF will also be presenting on ways that you can be involved in our work on behalf of family farmers and how you can help shape your local food systems.

Panelists for the first series event “Land, Soil, Water, and Farmers inFARMation” includes:

  • Linda Anspach, owner and rancher at DD Ranch in Terrebonne
  • Carys Wilkins, owner and farmer at Mahonia Gardens in Sisters
  • Clare Sullivan, agronomist and Small Farms and Community Food Systems at OSU Extension

InFARMation is an educational and community building event series created by FoFF that has taken place in locations throughout Oregon since 2009. These events connect eaters and farmers around the most important issues impacting healthy local food systems and socially responsible agriculture in Oregon. The events are always free to attend.
