“Eating is an agricultural act.” –Wendell Berry
Food is Health!
Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” But food can really be a pre-medicine, and members in our community are organizing around this principle. Click here for more details.
Upcoming InFARM topics include: Food for the Soul- Cut Flower Production, Dry-Land Farming, Where Have All the Mid-Sized Farms Gone?… Do you have a topic idea? Contact Erinn!
Since January 2009, Friends of Family Farmers has hosted InFARMation (and Beer!) each month in Portland. We bring the issues that Oregon family farmers face onto the radar of urban consumers and the community in general. Changing monthly, the topic always focuses on the larger picture of the connection between food and farms in our state. When eaters connect with farmers, it makes our food web stronger and makes real changes in our local food system possible.
Where: Holocene, located at the corner of SE Morrison and SE 10th in Portland. Please note: Holocene does not have a street sign. They do have a fantastic sound and video system, a full bar, and serve food.
When: The second Tuesday of every month.
5:30-6:30 — Arrive, networking, enjoyment of food and beverages
6:30-8:00 — Speakers(s), Q & A
8:00-8:30 — Additional discussion, networking & enjoyment of food and beverages
InFARMation (and Beer!) is always free and open to the public, AND IT IS ALL AGES!
