Crop Talks

Tuesday July 24th 2018

Greetings Farmer!

Join us for July Crop Talk at Rahane Farm in Hood River on Tuesday, July 24th at 6pm. Come learn about a permaculture and forest farm using a cooperative model. There will be a tour of a forest farm, livestock integration, vegetable gardens and description on how multiple entities work towards a common goal in a cooperative model. Rahane Farm is located at 2520 Kingsley Road. Drive 3.5 miles up Kingsley Road and you will see a driveway on your left with an open green gate. Aera will place sunflowers at the entrance as a marker. There will be a potluck at the end of the tour and please bring a dish to share and place settings of your own.
