WWOLF at Rainshadow Organics
October 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Willing Workers On Local Farms (WWOLF) WWOLF is a community program of Central Oregon Locavore Non-Profit with the goal of lending a hand to small farmers while educating the community about the true nature of local food.
We have revamped our program to adhere to the recommendations set forth by the Oregon Health Authority, CDC, and Gov. Kate Brown. Rest assured, we are taking every precaution to keep you safe. We hope you join us!
How It Works You will meet the group at Rainshadow Organics between Terrebonne and Sisters at 9am. After a round of introductions at the farm, we will split into groups and get to work. We will break for lunch around 12:30. This can complete your day at the farm or you can continue working after lunch.
What to Expect Good times, new friends, and a boots-on-the-ground education about local farming practices. We will be helping with end of season processing of dry corn, carrots, parsnips, celeriac, squash, and beets. Helpers will harvest, sort, wash and pack the produce. A portion of the harvest will be sent to Neighbor Impact to benefit those in need. We love dogs, but please leave them at home for this event.
What to Bring: Snacks and water, work gloves, your favorite hand tool, face mask for times when 6-foot distancing isn’t possible, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, and sunscreen. Tools and all materials needed to complete tasks will be provided by the farm. Soup and bread will be provided for lunch or bring your own! The Rainshadow cafe will also be open from 12-2pm for lunch service. We will have a hand washing station and sanitizer for participant use.
About Rainshadow: Rainshadow Organics is a full-diet farm with dozens of varieties of certified organic vegetables, herbs, berries, flowers, pork, chicken, eggs, turkey, beef, and grains on 200 acres. We are located 15 miles northeast of Sisters and 10 miles west of Terrebonne in Central Oregon. The farm is family owned and operated and we have been here since the early 1970’s. Sarahlee Lawrence grew up on the land and started Rainshadow in 2010.
All of the crops we grow are distributed within 50 miles of the farm through CSA programs, local restaurants and grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and our own Farm Store which opened in 2017. We are proud to provide our community with locally grown food that is good for the people and our land.
