WWOLF - July 31st at Mahonia Gardens 


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.

We have revamped our program to adhere to the recommendations set forth by the Oregon Health Authority, CDC, and Gov. Kate Brown. Rest assured, we are taking every precaution to keep you safe. We hope you join us!

How It Works You will meet the group at Mahonia Gardens in Sisters at 9am. After a round of introductions at the farm, we will split into groups and get to work. We will break for lunch around 12:30 and then wrap up our day. 

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

What to Bring: Snacks and water, work gloves, your favorite hand tool, face mask for times when 6-foot distancing isn't possible, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, and sunscreen. Tools and all materials needed to complete tasks will be provided by the farm. Soup and bread will be provided for lunch along with some product from the farm, or bring your own! We will have a hand washing station and sanitizer for participant use. 

About Mahonia: Mahonia Gardens is a one-acre market garden and CSA farm operating in Sisters, Oregon, dedicated to growing quality produce. We provide food to Sisters and Bend. We primarily cultivate in 4’-wide intensive, permanent beds resembling the French-Intensive or Bio-Intensive styles of Alan Chadwick or John Jeavons. Given our limited space, we maintain small paths—usually about 1’ wide—to accommodate the greatest amount of cultivated space. Most labor on the farm is done by hand, using broadforks and digging forks to create and maintain beds. While we are not certified organic, we use absolutely no harmful chemicals in our production—no pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or anything.
