Young Farmers are Mixin' It Up

What do you get when you gather a hundred farmers in a room? The hoe-down of a century!

Sunday, October 10th, from 3:30- 8:00 p.m., The Greenhorns, will be rearing into town with their Irresistible Fleet ready to pump up the jams, seed some sass(parilla) and chow down to get down for the Western Oregon Young Farmer Mixer. The mixer, co-hosted by Friends of Family Farmers is bound to be celery-bratory affair, especially since it’s happening at the site of one of our Urban Growth Bounty instructors, Naomi’s Organic Farm Supply. To spice it up even more, Salt Fire & Time (another UGB instructor) will be fixin’ up fresh fare grown by young farmers.

Live music, intellectual nourishment and local beer and on tap, with workshops on beneficial insects, farm advocacy, farm planning and marketing, internships and networking for beginning farmers. And, as if this wasn’t enough agri-stimulation, the Greenhorns will be sneak-peak-screening their documentary film on young farmers (check out the trailer here).

So y’all come down, y’hear? The price is right (free), so we’ll see you at Naomi’s, 2500 SE Tacoma St. in Portland, Oregon, USA.
