Join us on September 26 from 2-4pm.
Raptor Creek Farm Tour (3658 Upper River Rd, Grants Pass) starts at 2pm. Then move to The Haul (121 SW H Street, Grants Pass) for conversation beginning at 3pm.
Learn more about Raptor Creek Farm with a special guided tour from Josephine County Food Bank Director, Sam Engel. Sam will showcase the uniquely effective program that promotes food security and the local agricultural economy. Following the tour, reconvene at The Haul, grab a drink and a snack, and speak with our Food System Program Director, Greg Holmes. Greg will discuss how these programs fit into the larger food system work being done in Southern Oregon, which is itself a model for similar work happening around the state.
The innovative Rouge Valley Food System Network connects the many threads of Oregon’s food system, from growing crops through waste management. 1000 Friends of Oregon is proud to be a part of this network, enabling farms and farmers to benefit even more from the land we work so hard to protect. Stay after the conversation to meet and mingle with members of 1000 Friends Board of Directors. RSVP today!

What is an Open City?
A place where everyone can live in an affordable community, where transportation investments are made equitably, where decision-making is inclusive, and where new growth is accommodated without displacing existing communities. And without sprawling over some of the best farmland in the world.
Open City is connects our work -- from development that makes economic sense for our region, to climate smart growth, to anti-displacement policies, to sharing the benefits of Oregon's livability with all the folks who live here.
In 2015, 1000 Friends of Oregon celebrates four decades of advocating
for healthy, productive communities.
