Converging Creeks Farm is FoodWaves' partner farm in Colton, OR. It is a 6 acre mixed vegetable and small animal husbandry farm using organic practices to produce high quality products to nourish our minds and bodies while protecting our most valuable natural resources. It is the culmination of 18 years of a commitment to living with nature.
Small Farms Homesteading Internship Program
Our SFHIP offers comprehensive hands-on training opportunities for future farmers to learn the skills necessary to operate an organic farm. Our 6-acre property is home to a bio-intensive organic vegetable operation and animal pasture for chickens, goats, ducks, turkeys and pigs. We also raise bees who provide us with honey and pollination for our precious crops! We have an emphasis on soil health and strive to encourage soil micro flora and fauna with conservation techniques and tool selection that preserve habitat for these very important elements. Participants can live on the farm to complete the educational experience.
We also have a focus on community education and charitable support to those in need through our garden education program which travels to schools, community centers and other locales to teach community members how to grow their own food in raised beds. Participants in our SFHIP program have the opportunity to take part in these off-farm activities as well to give back to the community.
For those with a more homesteading/food security mindset, our farm serves as a demonstration plot where one learns the tricks of the trade that can be applied to home efforts for improved efficiency and success. This can be accomplished through a 2 day/week stipend position or by volunteering on your own schedule when it makes sense for you.
