Local Food & Farm Discovery Day
Celebrate local food by tasting it and meeting Central Oregon merchants and producers at Savory Spice Shop on May 19. The Central Oregon Seed Exchange will be there to tell you which local seeds do well in our climate. Visitors can also plant seeds to get their own gardens started at home. Don't forget to grab a Food & Farm Directory; it's the perfect resource for finding local products at your fingertips, available from The High Desert Food and Farm Alliance.
