Today Jody’s friends Anil and Emily picked us up and drove us out to Lee Falls, up in the mountains about 20 minutes (and a 45 minute hike) from Forest Grove. Along the way, though, we stopped in at the farm Pacific University maintains only about 3 blocks from downtown FG. Emily interns there in the mornings (she and Anil are going to build a fully-sustainable farm together) and wanted to show us all the chickens, baby goats, fields of produce, kittens, and bunny rabbits. It was really impressive. A lot of the produce, also, is maintained by group of Hispanic farmers called Adelantes Mujeres and is sold at the farmer’s market where we shopped on Wednesday. So that was exciting: our produce was grown about 4 blocks from where we bought it. It doesn’t get a whole lot more local than that!
