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.
The Latest from FoodWaves:
Summer is a glint on the horizon. Come see us at market!
- Now that the sun is peaking its head out from time to time the greens and other veggies are more than willing to abide their true calling. Get ready to get your local on and support small scale agriculture. 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.
- Our full time (paid) internship positions are full for the 2022 growing season, but 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.
- We were very pleased to be a part of the Give! Guide donation drive in 2021. If you missed it, don't fret! You can always make a tax-deductible donation to support agricultural education any time of year here on our website. Just visit the Donate page for more details.
