Clackamas County’s Farm Share Partner in 2017 is Our Table Cooperative Farm. They are offering a 33-week farm share from May 3 through December 13, 2017. Bi-Weekly option available (17 weeks). Shares will be delivered every Wednesday from their fields in Sherwood to the Red Soils Campus, DSB delivery room. Pick up is between 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Your badge will be programmed for entry. For more information, please see the Farm Share Flyer.
Joining Our Table means your produce comes direct from farm to your table. Get your weekly share of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits and follow along with your farmers through the season. Additionally, participants can order other farm products including eggs, milk, meats, grains, prepared foods from their kitchen. Thank you for supporting a Clackamas County farm!
The Red Soils Farm Stand is a pilot partnership with the Oregon City Farmers' Market that brings fruit and produce to the Red Soils campus every Thursday from 11:15 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the growing season. The Farm Stand is located in the Development Services Building lobby. To learn more about this program, visit the Sustainability intranet webpage or contact Eben Polk.
The Oregon City Farmer's Market is year round at the Red Soils Public Services Building parking lot on Saturdays. Please see website for Winter season bi-weekly dates.
We've heard employees comment, "I want to eat more veggies and whole grains, but I don't know how to cook them." Or, "I like veggies; I just don't have time to prepare them." In response, Wellness has brought cooking classes to Clackamas County employees. Upcoming cooking sessions will be announced in the Wellness & Safety @ Work Newsletter. Registration is required.
Meet the Cooks
Katherine Deumling, owner of Cook With What You Have, has a passion for brining delicious food, easy processes and fun into the kitchen. Katherine grew up in Germany and studied food and culture in Italy and Mexico. Italian cuisine inspires most of her dishes with German, Mexican, Indian and/or Thai influences among others. Katherine grows many of her own herbs and vegitables, and she is an active advocate in our food community.
Are you planning a meeting or an event with food? Many of our colleagues are trying to eat healthy. As a County, we are striving to create a culture of wellness. One way you can contribute is to make sure that events have a water option (preferably not in a plastic bottle) and a fruit option as alternatives to soda and cookies.
