Marion-Clackamas Spring Update
In February we held our monthly meeting Nutrien Ag in Brooks and were excited to be able to talk with their group and get a tour of the facility and their operations. It was a great turnout and we were so grateful to Nutrien Ag for hosting us, giving us a tour and providing lunch! In March, Marion/Clackamas Chapter voted in new officers for President and Treasurer. Our current officers are President – Lauren Olson, VP – Randi Bural, Treasurer – Tracy Duerst and Secretary – Emily Duerst. We are excited for a new year and new ways we can engage our members and serve our local community. We are currently working on the digital campaign and distribution of the 2020 Farm Guide as we have seen spikes in interest in local farm stands and food providers with the coronavirus outbreak. We hope this year the Farm Guide will be of even more value in connecting our local growers to local consumers. We will be holding our April meeting virtually in light of social distancing and will be sending out emails and instructions to our members for how to attend and participate soon.
