Willing Workers on Local Farms
WWOLF (Willing Workers on Local Farms) gathers ‘packs’ of volunteers from the community to spend a day working on a local farm. In exchange for helping out with farm chores and various projects, farmers prepare and share a meal with the volunteers that is made with their very own farm fresh products.
If you are interested in participating in WWOLF please join our mailing list (fill out the “Sign Up For Our Newsletter” form in the footer) and keep your eye on Central Oregon Locavore News. Children are welcome, but must be supervised at ALL times!
Make the trek to Prineville to visit SunLife Farm and Ranch on May 21.
DD Ranch needs our help preparing the pumpkin patch on Sunday, May 29.
In addition to raising grass fed beef, lamb and pork, DD Ranch hosts an amazing pumpkin patch each fall. We will need many hands to prepare the pumpkin patch for seeding. Find out more and register HERE.
