CENTRAL OREGON EDIBLE ADVENTURE CREW
Central Oregon Edible Adventure Crew is a program that consists of sustainably-minded volunteers who strive to connect the community with the natural local food sources through direct experience (harvesting on the farm), education (learning about local foods & how to preserve them) and community (making it fun!).
The Edible Adventure Crew believes that eating locally doesn’t have to be mysterious, expensive, or difficult. There is great satisfaction in returning to the simplicity of things such as discovering new tastes, harvesting your own food and “putting things up” for the winter months.

Kimberly JamJam - Stone Fruits
What: Group caravan to Kimberly, OR where we will “jam” on over to Thomas Orchards to harvest peaches, nectarines and plums. Thomas Orchards is a minimal spray operation, but not certified organic. It is very, very difficult to grow stonefruit organically, however. Their fruit is absolutely amazing! Join us and see for yourself.
We will be provided with wholesale pricing:
Peaches – $.95cents/lb
Nectarines – $1.05/lb
Plums – $1.00
When: Sunday, August 12th at 8:15am the caravan leaves
Cost: Free to participate, but you must pay for your own fruit
What: Meet at a small local orchard and pick all the apples your little heart desires.
When: Sunday, September 16th from 10am-noon
Where: Meet at Apple Bob’s place
(Address will be provided upon registration only)
Who: Led by Abby Kellner-Rode, Board Member
What to bring: Ladder, tons of buckets, baskets or bags for your apples, water & gloves if you would like them.
Date: July 22, 2018
Time: Meet at Locavore to Carpool at 8:00am, leave by 8:15.
The Scoop: We will be carpooling to Springbank Farm in Lebanon, Oregon. This is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Bend. We will plan to meet at Locavore at 8:00am on Sunday to carpool. We will drive to Lebanon arriving at 10:30/11:00 and spend about an hour or two picking. We will then eat lunch together before driving back over the pass.
