inFARMation (and Beer!)
Roots Organic Brewing [Out of business. *Sigh*]

InFARMation (and Beer!) is designed to promote community discussion on the connection between food and farms in Oregon. This is a great opportunity to network with the community of Oregonians who want to have a say in our local food system!

As always, InFARMation (and Beer!) is on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, Beers are only $2.50, and the event is free and open to the public.

Agenda:

A third generation dairy farmer from Monmouth, Jon Bansen of Double J Jersey Farm transitioned from a conventional dairy to an organic dairy in the late 1990s, and is part of the farmer co-op Organic Valley.

Jon has turned farm diversity and organic dairying into a profitable business while providing a comfortable and sustainable life for himself, his family, and his cows. Jon also gives back to the community by providing farm tours and pasture walks for consumers, students, farmers and extension agents.

5:30-6:30 arrive, enjoy food and drinks, networking 6:30-8:00 speaker presentations with Q&A 8:00-8:30 more networking, discussion, and of course, organic brew!

TiE OR: Rethinking the Foodshed: The emergent redesign in our food supply system
Ater Wynne

Sustainably grown and organic food is one of the fastest growing industries in the country. It is about environmental values but it is also about knowledge: rediscovering taste, rediscovering ripeness, rediscovering the connection between the field and the table.

Are these rediscovered values byproducts of a focus on sustainability?

Or is sustainability achievable precisely because these values are in high demand, and require sustainable agriculture and food delivery systems to succeed?

And how can these solutions scale -- is the concept of "distributed scale" an oxymoron or a breakthrough?

Our current food supply chain has become increasingly complex, involving a global network of farmers, packers, shippers, manufacturers & retailers. Your neighborhood grocery store is likely to carry more items from far flung areas of the world than produce that has been grown locally.

Several incidents over the course of last year have brought the increasing complexity and anonymity of our food supply systems to national - and international - attention. The salmonella outbreaks related to spinach & peanuts, the tainted milk from China as well last year’s hike in gasoline prices that had repercussions in the increased food costs -- all fuel a debate about the importance of controlling how and where our food is grown, harvested, processed, stored, and distributed.

Central to this conversation has been the re-emergence of the idea of the food shed.

How do we get the variety in our food and yet stay local? Does local matter and if so why?

Join us for a discussion on this topic on April 21st with David Lively, marketing Director at Organically Grown, largest wholesaler of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs in the Pacific Northwest.

Brunch 31

September 29, Noon - 2pm

This month through the end of 2013, Brunch has its own apartment, smack in the middle of downtown Portland.

Please Note: Brunch has slimmed down. Talks start at 12:30, and everything finishes by 2pm.

We are doing something a bit different this month. A member of the RC Board has been working with the Lewis and Clark College Venture competition and suggested we have some of the student businesses do a "dress rehearsal" of the final pitch they will present to a panel of judges where they could receive up to $30,000 in funding for their venture.

In keeping with the spirit of the competition, we're going to give you very little info about these businesses. The students will be looking for feedback on their presentation and how well they pitch their venture. Exciting!

Bring some or all of these things for the optimum Brunch Experience

  • A healthy sense of curiosity
  • Food to share
  • Friends! Lots of friends!
  • Your own plates and utensils

This Month's Speakers

Food Bytes Presents: Talking Trash
Quick Left

Wasted food comes at an enormous financial and environmental cost. In the US, food is the largest single source of waste.

  • 30% of all food, worth $48 billion, is thrown away annually.
  • Food production accounts for approx. 16% of energy use, 50% of land, and 80% of freshwater consumed.

We're bringing together local experts to discuss how they are fighting wasted food by working with farmers, distributors, and foodservice providers. Learn about the creativity, complexity, and technology involved in their solutions as well as opportunities to continue to address waste in our food systems.
