Feb 9th – Hear directly from the policy makers!
The InFARMation (and Beer!) series started last year and has been a huge success. The event takes place the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Roots Organic Brewery. On Feb 9th the Friends of Family Farmers will host what promises to be one of the most interesting events to date. The guests will be Lynn Youngbar from the Oregon Board of Agriculture, Representative Brian Clem, and Steve Cohen, Manager of Food Policy & Programs for the City of Portland. This moderated panel will talk to us about how policy is made in our state and what their experiences have been working within their respective policy-making body.
I look forward to a lively debate about how best to promote good, clean, and fair farming practices & food.
