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.

- It's hard to believe that Fall is here already. We are feeling it on the farm as crops are starting to grow more slowly. We even had our first hard frost on September 15th. The bounty is still coming forth though so come and get it! You can find us every Saturday at the PSU Farmer's Market from 8:30 - 2 PM. We will be there into late November. Visit us there for a sampling of our delicious specialty arugulas, lettuces, fall vegetables, and pasture-raised chicken eggs.
- We are now accepting internship applications for the 2022 growing season. We have a variety of positions available to fit many different skill levels and schedules. Time commitments range from Full Time all the way to 1 day per week. We also have volunteer opportunities which do not require a weekly commitment. Visit the Farm Learning 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.
