Seed to Table Farm to host fall tours

Seed to Table Farm is inviting the Sisters community onto the farm for a free fall tour. The once-a-year opportunity is a chance to see beans growing to the ceiling in the greenhouses, walk through fields, and ask questions of the farmers who steward the land to grow nearly 45,000 pounds of produce on just a few acres.

Building community through fresh vegetables is at the heart of the Sisters-based nonprofit, Seed to Table Oregon. Tucked in behind a long row of townhouses, just a short walk from Sisters Elementary School, Seed to Table Farm sits on three acres.

Founded in 2013, the mission of the organization is to increase the health and wellness of the Central Oregon community through providing equitable access to farm-fresh produce and through providing opportunities in farm-based education. Seed to Table envisions a community where people of all races, ages, sexual orientations, genders, abilities, geographies, and socioeconomic statuses have access to fresh produce and farm-based education.

The board and staff are dedicated to growing and providing organic, fresh veggies that are nourishing, locally grown, and reflect the preferences of those we serve. The mission is brought to life through three different program areas: K-12 farm-based education in the Sisters schools, the Feeding Families produce distribution programs, and the Sisters Farmers Market.

Tours will be about 45 minutes, with group sizes of two to eight people. For more information and to select a date for a tour, register at https:// href="http://www.seedtotableoregon.org/fall-farm-tours" target="_blank">www.seedtotableoregon.org/fall-farm-tours.
