Last updated 3/28/2023 at Noon
Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture, a project of the Roundhouse Foundation, will host the first installment of the 2023 Food & Agriculture Lecture Series at 6 p.m., Thursday, April 13, at the Sisters School District office (525 E. Cascade Ave.).
Speakers will share transformative, regenerative, collaborative forces and cultural traditions at play in today’s environment, specifically surrounding the American food system.
This event titled: “Exploring Regenerative Agricultural Practices, Traditional Knowledge & Sustainable modes of Living” will include presentations from Dallas Hall Defrees, the regenerative ranching program director of SustainableNorthwest; Craig J. Barber, a Pacific Northwest-based independent photographer documenting farmers, labor, and working conditions; and Javier Lara, the program manager for Anahuac, a program of the Capaces Leadership Institute, a community-centered program that offers traditional education in agriculture, culinary arts, cultural arts, wellness, and native languages.
This event is the first in a series of three lectures supporting the artist residency program at Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts and Agriculture.
“We look forward to hosting this series of presentations representing unique viewpoints all surrounding community food systems here in the northwest,” said Ana Varas, arts project coordinator for Pine Meadow Ranch. “We hope these sessions spark conversation and opportunities to learn for all of our Central Oregon community members.”
Each event is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is required. For more information or to register call 541-904-0700 or visit www.roundhousefoundation.org/events.
