3rd Annual "Springs to Sprouts"

You're invited to join us on this year’s Springs to Sprouts field trip. This year we're going to focus on the "Sprouts" part of the field trip and head directly to Jefferson County from Bend. Here's the itinerary:

  • Depart from Bend by bus at 8:45 am
  • Visit Poland Organic Dairy near Madras
  • Lunch at Central Oregon Seed, Inc. (Lunch will be provided)
  • Visit Fox Hollow Ranch, a carrot-seed growing farm near Madras
  • Back in Bend by 4:00 pm

We have a fantastic group of experts who will speak during the bus ride and at the various stops. They include:

  • Dr. Daniele McKay - geologist, U of O instructor
  • Mike Britton - manager of North Unit Irrigation District
  • Jos & Deanna Poland - owners of Poland Organic Dairy
  • Mike Weber - Central Oregon Seed, Inc. (COSI)
  • Margi Hoffman - Farmers Conservation Alliance (FCA)
  • Marty and Kevin Richards - Fox Hollow Ranch (FHR)
  • Jamie McLeod-Skinner - Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB)
  • Ron Nelson - Deschutes River Conservancy (DRC)

Springs to Sprouts was created in 2017 as a way to bring together river advocates, farmers, and other key community members to learn about the Deschutes River and irrigated agriculture in Central Oregon. Through this field trip, friendships have been forged and our understanding of each others' lives and perspectives has deepened. Collaboration begins with conversation, and our community is strengthened through both.

This year's Springs to Sprouts is a Shared Vision for the Deschutes event. It is co-hosted with our partners, Deschutes River Conservancy and Central Oregon Seeds, Inc., and sponsored in part by the Energy Trust of Oregon.
