FoodWaves cultivates food justice and access to healthy food in Clackamas County and the surrounding communities.
Our goal is to put the power of food production back into the hands of the people.
For generations 70 plus percent of our population was involved in food production. Today it is less than 2%, and the majority of those farmers are nearing retirement age. It is vitally important that these skills be passed on to the next generations.

- We are so excited to be a part of Willamette Week's Give!Guide this year.

- We are now accepting applications for our part-time internship positions for the 2024 growing season. We are also looking for an experienced farmer to join our team (get in touch if this is you!). We have a variety of positions available to fit many different skill levels and schedules. Part-time positions may be eligible for a gas stipend with a weekly commitment. We also have volunteer opportunities which do not require a weekly commitment. Visit the Farm Internship page for more information. Our season runs March through November so there are plenty of opportunities for learning to fit almost any schedule. Email email@example.com if you have questions.
- During the winter the daylight hours go below 10 hours. This is called the Persephone Period. During this time plants essentially do not grow (you could argue that they grow some, but it is soooooo slow that you would be hard pressed to measure it). We entered this period on Nov 5th, 2023. That means that it is time for the farm to hibernate and regroup for next year.
- You can find us every Saturday at the PSU Farmer's Market from mid-April through Thanksgiving. Visit us there for a sampling of our delicious specialty arugulas, lettuces, vegetables, and pasture-raised chicken eggs.
