Central Oregon Edible Adventure Crew provides the experience of harvesting and gleaning foods on local
farms and sustainably gathering edible foods from the local wilderness. This program
works to engage and educate participants about ways to preserve local foods to allow for
year-long seasonal food consumption including home preservation classes with gleaned
foods and seasonal recipes.

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.

Edible Adventure Crew is scheduling events for the summer! We are following guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority and limiting the number of participants to keep our community safe. Join us for a fun time outdoors!


Sunday, September 20: Join us at a neighborhood orchard on Bend’s east side to pick apples and have them pressed into cider. Generous friends of Locavore are opening their orchard and bringing their cider press for our use. Hooray! Registration is required and space is limited.

How it works: Come to the orchard between 10am and 1pm to pick apples and utilize the cider press.
