Local Food and the Planet
Join us for a special Earth Day event celebrating local food and its positive impact on the planet.
Caleb and Ashley of Sungrounded Farm
Ethan and Courtney of North 44 Ranch
Doors at 5pm
The evening will feature:
The theme of the event is the connection between local food and the environment, highlighting how small-scale farming practices are regenerative and beneficial for the land.
By choosing local food, we can support sustainable farming practices that rebuild soil health, limit or eliminate the use of pesticides and herbicides, maintain crop diversity for wildlife, and reduce transportation emissions. We will also explore how local ranchers use grass-based horticulture techniques that are more humane and environmentally friendly than traditional feedlot operations.
Together, we can make a difference by being mindful of our food choices and supporting a sustainable future for ourselves, our children, and our planet.

Attire: High Desert Formal What is High Desert Formal? Let's just say is anything between cocktail attire and black tie. We don't get many opportunities to dress up in Central Oregon, so if you are feeling fancy, go ahead and glam up for dinner! If the thought of dressing up makes you break out in hives, that's OK, too. Just do your best.
For gals: Fancy pants, nice tops, skirts, and boots will all pass.
For guys: jeans and a nice sport coat will get you through the door.
We are going to have a great time no matter what. We will be there with bells on ready to throw a great party!

Central Oregon Locavore Non Profit has been supporting local food and local farmers since 2009.
A grassroots, boots-on-the-ground nonprofit thriving against the odds, we manage a 7-days a week, year-round, indoor farmers market and 5 educational programs that engage all ages by directly taking the community to local farmers and directly bringing local food to the community.
Our programs, including Farm Kids, Edible Adventure Crew, Willing Workers on Local Farms, Locavore Food School, and Meet Your Farmer dinners, are experiential and serve a greater purpose. The benefits of local food are exponential for individual, community, and planet.
