See you Saturday at the market!
Cultivating the Next Generation of Farmers - InFARMation June 28th!
The USDA estimates that 25-50% of farmland will change hands in the next decade. One cause for this change is that the average age of farmers across the US is 58 years old. Those producers are preparing to retire, or at least not work their bodies so hard.
Who then will grow our food?
Luckily, there is a growing population of folks interested in farming, but the hurdles facing these new farmers are many: high costs of land, limited access to capital, long days and low wages, etc.
We will screen the Greenhorns Documentary that explores the lives of beginning farmers across America.
After the film, we will hear from Molly Notarianni, Next Generation Organizer for Friends of Family Farmers and Matt Gordon, Portland Chapter Coordinator for Rogue Farm Corps. These two will talk about the barriers facing beginning agrarians, as well as the opportunities available here in Oregon for the next generation of farmers.
Where: Holocene, located at the corner of SE Morrison and SE 10th in Portland. Please note: Holocene does not have a street sign. They do have a fantastic sound and video system, a full bar, and serve food.
