You may have heard of WWOOFers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms), volunteer farmers on organic farms who trade labor for housing and food. Central Oregon Locavore, an online community and marketplace for local farmers, is creating a similar project, called WWOLFs - substituting "local" for "organic" (although most of the farms are organic, too).

 

If you've ever entertained the idea of farming or just want a good workout and homemade meal, join WWOLF for a day on Rainshadow Organics' farm in Terrebonne on February 13. It may seem a bit early to be growing vegetables, but, according to farmer Sarahlee Lawrence, "We'll be building the soil for all the goodies it will produce in the coming months."

 

Instructions are to bring warm clothes, gloves, lunch and snacks. Dinner will be cooked using the farm's food. RSVP by emailing info@centraloregonlocavore.com or calling 541-633- 0674. For more info, visit their site at www.wwolfpack.blogspot.com.

  • Let's Find These Scoundrelly Bar Thieves

    We at the Blender believe in good ol' American justice -- and every other kind of justice. That's why we're asking you, the Internet reading folks in Bend, to help us find the low-life couple that distracted local filmmaker Chris Kas, then proceeded to jack his leather jacket which contained his wallet, keys and a borrowed HD video camera.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
