CONVERSATIONS at the ROCKFORD GRANGE
JOIN US for our first season of the Conversation Project hosted by the Rockford Grange in Hood River and presented by Oregon Humanities, whose goal is to connect people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. These conversations invite diverse perspectives and nurture respectful civic engagement and curiosity. Rockford Grange doors open and soup's on at 5:30 pm. Conversation begins at 6:30 pm.
$5.00 suggested donation for conversation; no one turned away for lack of funds

Good Food, Bad Food: Agriculture, Ethics, and Personal Choice - Oregon boasts a multibillion-dollar agricultural economy that includes both industrial agriculture and small-scale efforts such as community supported agriculture memberships, farmers’markets, and community gardens. These smaller, community-based efforts are on the rise as means to nurture community and create local and autonomous food systems. Are these choices as consequential as consumers would like them to be? Does “voting with your dollars” significantly shape our agricultural systems?
