Recently, I had the opportunity to exit the city and enter the county. I explored Converging Creeks Farm which operates Food|Waves (www.foodwaves.org) and sells their produce at our local farmers market at PSU (www.portlandfarmersmarket.org/) and is an advocate for sustainable agriculture. I was able to photograph all aspects of the farm from turkeys and goats to harvesting squash and planting lettuce – I even experienced a fresh meal picked right from the farm; which by the way was fantastic. The entire day was filled with new knowledge and information about fresh food, cooking methods and the inner workings of a farm community. I loved the outdoor kitchen area and the two little puppies running around carelessly. It was an amazingly different day from my city life.
Special thanks to Co-Executive Director Nathan McFall, Alicia Milligan and intern Jessica McNaughton for allowing me to showcase a vibrant alternative and fruitful example of living from the land.
