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.

Let's Grow! Intern Positions Available. Make a donation today.
- We are now accepting applications for our full time (paid) internship positions for the 2023 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 emerged from this period on Feb 6th, 2023. That means that it is time to start this growing process! As such, we have seeds in the ground and we are on our way to being productive again.
- 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.
