The Portland Area CSA Coalition and Ecotrust are teaming up to showcase the farms and producers that provide CSA subscriptions. This is the perfect event to learn about all things CSA: what it is, why it’s a vital part of a thriving economy, and how to find the perfect CSA farmer for you and for your family.
Come meet the genius farmers who provide Portland with boatloads of the best food available anywhere in the country. Talk to them about their sustainable practices, how they choose their seeds, how they manage irrigation, and their favorite recipe for kohlrabi. Show your kids where their food comes from, introduce them to the amazing people who grow it, and give them a taste of farm life in the city.
Beyond farmers, the event will include activities galore for you and for the kiddos: food samples, cookbook swaps, pollinator races, vegetable art, and maybe even some friendly farm animals.
