Umpqua Valley Food Day a Success!

Thank you all for coming to the potluck and seed swap last night. We had about 50 folks come out to eat good food and learn about seed saving!

Highlights of the night included:

  •  a seed swap table FULL of seeds from Lighthouse Retreat Center, Liberty Seed Company and backyard gardeners.
  •  a potluck table FULL of delicious Douglas-Grown food including kale salad, carrots, pickled asparagus, apple pear berry pie and more.
  • announcement from Tammera Karr that the Douglas County Commissioners are the first in the country to proclaim a county-wide Food Day!

Thank you to those that attended and shared all of the exciting work you’re doing for food systems, helping Douglas County become a happier, healthier place! If you would like to have your project or perspective included in the Community Food Assessment being conducted, you can contact Laura at the information below. She’d love to talk with you! All it takes to be included is a bit of time to sit down and chat.

Thanks for all of the great things you do and all of the delicious food you make! See more pictures by clicking here.
