With your support, we can continue our work
Educating in Oregon and beyond: In 2017, Our Family Farms will go on a state wide tour to educate communities about GE Free Safe Zones and Seed Sanctuaries. We will talk to local farmers and individuals about local soil contamination issues from GE crops.
Increasing economic vitality for farmers: Our Family Farms has been awarded a USDA grant to research the development of a branding and an economic vitality plan for farmers to use in GMO free counties and zones. The research will look at the the economic impact and added value of crops grown in GE safe zone.
Teaching the next generation: In partnership with the Rogue Valley Farm to School Program, Our Family Farms has been teaching 4th graders in Jackson County public schools about the the importance of the GMO Seed Sanctuary they live in and why we created it. Students learned seed saving techniques and processed corn seed that they took home in packets to plant in the spring.
