Summer’s in full swing! Ready for endless outdoor adventures in the lushness that only the Pacific Northwest can offer? With Independence Day around the corner (if you haven’t seen fireworks on the Oregon Coast, make this year the first; I promise it’s worth it) and the total solar eclipse on August 21, and all sorts of shenanigans in between, you won’t be hearing the dreaded refrain of “I’m bored!” anytime soon.
Wee! Spring is here! What better way to honor the season of growth and newness than to feature the bountiful farms right here in Portland’s backyard? We’re excited to bring you this year’s edition of our CSA Resource Guide: a colorful centerfold with all you need to know to keep a fresh, delicious supply of lovingly harvested fruits and veggies (plus other goods like fish, meat and eggs) coming in the door all season long! Yum! We’ve also rounded up a bunch of summer camps where kiddos can get firsthand farming experience on real working farms, as well as generally get their hands (and feet and everywhere else) good and dirty while soaking up the spoils of Mother Nature.
Hello, 2017. The start of a new year comes with feelings of new beginnings and clean slates. 2016 was a turbulent year for our country at times, and an important reminder to look closely at what is immediately around and dear to us, no matter what’s happening in the greater arena that may cloud our ability to see clearly.
