About the Rogue Valley Food System Network
We believe that good food has the power to foster healthy and happy lives, unify our community, and even change the world.
We envision a Rogue Valley that is celebrated for its healthy, sustainable soil; where everyone producing our food, from field to table, is a thriving participant in our local economy; and where locally grown and produced food is available to all.
The Rogue Valley Food System Network endeavors to make this vision a reality by:
- Educating network partners and the broader public about the challenges and opportunities in our food system
- Fostering collaboration and shared leadership among institutions, organizations, and decision-making bodies central to the regional food system to address challenges and enjoy opportunities
- Celebrating Rogue Valley farmers and food artisans
About Rogue Farm Corps
Rogue Farm Corps trains and equips the next generation of farmers and ranchers through hands-on educational programs and the perservatin of farmland. We work to support our local agricultural economy and serve as a model for other communities.
Rogue Farm Corps’ educational programs combine hands-on training, classroom learning and farm-based experience on a diverse network of commercial family farms across Oregon. Our Internship Program is a season-long entry-level training program designed for beginning farmers and ranchers seeking a starting point in sustainable agriculture. Our Apprenticeship Program is an advanced-level training program designed for beginning farmers and ranchers seeking managerial experience and business development support. Both programs provide real-world hands-on training with some of the best farm mentors in Oregon focused on agro-ecology and sustainable farming methods.
Rogue Farm Corps Farmland Preservation program seeks to address the issue of access to land for beginning farmers by building a broad coalition of supporters to work on farmland succession and to preserve the agricultural land base for future Oregon farmers and ranchers.
