WWOLF - August 18th at Golden Eagle Organics 

Thank you to our generous sponsors!

Willing Workers On Local Farms (WWOLF) WWOLF is a community program of Central Oregon Locavore Non-Profit with the goal of lending a hand to small farmers while educating the community about the true nature of local food.

How It Works You will meet the group at Golden Eagle Organics. After a round of introductions at the farm, we will split into groups and get to work. We will break for lunch around noon and then return to work until about 3pm.

What to Expect Good times, new friends, and a boots-on-the-ground education about local farming practices. Children are welcome with adult supervision. We love dogs, but please leave them at home for this event.

What to Bring Snacks, work gloves, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, water, and sunscreen. Tools and all materials needed to complete tasks will be provided by the farm. Lunch will be provided.

About Golden Eagle Organics: The Lepore Family (Brian, Emily, Gus, Claudia and Bodhi the dog) migrated to Central Oregon from East-Central Indiana in 2012. Brian spent the previous decade researching and teaching agricultural and environmental soil sciences and Agroecology. During that time, he worked with many farmers in their fields and fell in love with farming.

       But, academia and farming, done right, are both jobs that require total focus. So, in 2012, Brian quit his job at Ball State University with the hope of starting a farm. Emily found a job as a speech and language pathologist at St. Charles Hospital in Bend and Brian started looking for land to farm.

       In 2014, they found two properties: a somewhat neglected 77-acre hay farm about 25 miles north of Bend right on Highway 97 and a house with a few acres of pasture just outside Bend. The Lepores live in the Bend house and commute to the Culver property (so that Emily can get to her hospital job) and get help on the farm and with kid duties from Brian’s family (Vince (“Grand Pops”), Gisela (“Omi”) and Bruce, Yuki and Louie (Brian’s brother’s family)) who followed them to Central Oregon. With Brian’s family all here (they’re not “all there”) and much of Emily’s family on the west coast, Central Oregon was the perfect place to start their new farming adventure.
