Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

As Farmers Market season kicks off, Central Oregon Locavore has coordinated with local farms to give Central Oregonians a chance to see, firsthand, where their food comes from.

Faces of Farming Family Fun Day

From 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday, June 13, Fields Farm, Juniper Jungle, and Worthy Brewing are hosting educational farm tours with activities the whole family can get into. Fields Farm is offering a talk on how things grow, with a hands-on seed sowing component that allows participants to plant seeds in the Future of Farming Garden. El Sancho will be on site to feed hungry future farmers. Cost for the activities is $8 per child registered, lunch isn't included. Juniper Jungle has a Bees and Pollination talk planned with a crash course in beeswax candle making offered. Rumor has it Bonta Gelato will be there handing out free honey gelato too. Cost is $10 per child registered. Worthy Brewing is giving tours of its on-site gardens and offering up half-priced beer for grown-ups and activities for the kids at no cost.

Willing Workers On Local Farms (WWOLF)

WWOLF is another Central Oregon Locavore project aimed at helping small farms while providing the local community with a chance to learn about the nature of local food. The first of the season takes place this Sunday, June 14 at Juniper Jungle Farm. WWOLFers can expect to get dirty and put in a solid day's work on this unique, permaculture-based farm in exchange for a lunch provided courtesy of Juniper Jungle Farm, Primal Cuts Meat Market, Humm Kombucha, Great Harvest Bread Company, No-Bake Cookie Company, and Central Oregon Locavore. To sign up or ask for more information contact Owen Murphy at wwolf@centraloregonlocavoree.org or 541-383-7766.
