WWOLF - July 9 at Deschutes Canyon Garlic 

Willing Workers On Local Farms (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 Deschutes Canyon Garlic between Terrebonne and Sisters at 9am. After a round of introductions, we will split into groups and get to work. We will finish our day with light lunch of soup and bread.

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. Our primary task will be to harvest garlic and get it hanging in the barn to dry. There will be jobs for all ages and abilities.

What to Bring: Snacks, plenty of water, work gloves, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, and sunscreen. If you have a wheelbarrow that you can easily bring, please do. Soup and bread will be provided for lunch, or bring your own! We will have a hand washing station and sanitizer for participant use. 

About Deschutes Canyon Garlic: Farming in one of the fertile canyons of northern Deschutes County, Deschutes Canyon Garlic specializes in growing unique and flavorful varieties of certified organic seed garlic. We strive to produce seed garlic of exceptional quality, meticulously grading our harvest to ensure our customers will grow beautiful, vigorous garlic in their gardens and on their farms. The arid climate and sandy loam soils of Central Oregon's high desert are uniquely suited to growing clean, disease-free, seed quality garlic. Our garlic farm is certified organic by Oregon Tilth, and we are devoted to building fertility on the farm through the practices of cover cropping, compost application and crop rotation. Growing garlic is our passion and we hope it's yours too!
