Energizing our lives with a variety of delicious wholesome foods
The Mother’s Day Weekend Community Garden Family Day is May 11th from 11 am to 2 pm at the Prineville Presbyterian Church. Free veggie starts, gardening tips and educational booths, and fun for the kids with Storytime in the Garden, an Obstacle Course and Rock Painting. (Okay…truthfully, adults would like these too!) There will be lots of information to help you grow your own fresh produce and learn about our local community gardens. Spend a great day with Mom and the whole family at our second annual event.
Be sure to plant an extra row in your garden as the “Share Your Bounty” effort is coming back again this summer. Share Your Bounty is a community exchange of bounty from local gardens. This is a great way to reduce food waste from your garden and share it with others in the community. Check back to learn more about where these locations will be and how you can not only share your excess – but actually take home a different vegetable that didn’t produce well for you. All for free…we just love to share!
These efforts were made possible by a grant from Oregon Food Bank’s F.E.A.S.T program along with collaborations from several of our partnering organizations.
Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is an important element in improving you health, and its easy! Our group has farmers, gardeners, and people who love cooking. And who doesn’t love sharing meals with family and friends? Enjoy some of our favorite recipes we’ve specially selected just for you on Our Favorite Recipes Page.
Our Partners in locally-sourced, healthy food
High Desert Food and Farm Alliance lists locally sourced foods on their website. Many of these are in the Prineville/Crook County area.
During the summer our local farms offer an agri-tourism event called Crooked River Open Pastures (C.R.O.P.).
