Soil Born Farms
"Our mission is to create an urban agriculture and education project that empowers youth and adults to discover and participate in a local food system that encourages healthy living, nurtures the environment and grows a sustainable community."
Soil Born Farms hosts educational events, marketplaces, and a host of other events to promote the value of local food.
Ten Rivers Food Web
"The Ten Rivers Food Web mission first sprouted back in 1999. That year, Sharon Thornberry of Oregon Food Bank and Reverend John Pitney, founder of That’s My Farmer!, hosted "A Place at the Table" conversations to address increasing hunger throughout Oregon. These conversations got a number of residents in our communities thinking about our local foodshed, and the opportunities that lie within our rich and varied landscapes."
