The Farming Portland Survey and Favorite Sources Tab

The Farming Portland Food Survey
There are so many reasons not to eat local and sustainable.  I know that in my house, we've tried and failed many times to eat more local, to support our local food economy, and to eat less industrial food.  But the demands of work and life make the convenience of grocery stores undeniable. 

How does your family handle these challenges?  What resources do you rely on to feed your family?  Please take a couple minutes to fill out this 100% anonymous survey.  I'd love to learn more about how your family handles these challenges.  I'll post the results at the end of the month. 
    • 100% anonymous.
    • This survey should take less than 2 minutes of your time.
    • Check back later in the month to see the results..

Also, this week I am launching the:

The Farming Portland Favorite Oregon Sources Tab
This is something I've been thinking of creating for a long time.  There are so many really good sources for sustainable food here in the Portland area, but not everyone knows about them.  Because I've been asked many times what sources I like for this or that, a local resource page seemed like a good idea.  This won't be everything, just the things that I like.  I'll work on updating it as more things cross my path.

  • Links to responsible local sources
  • I'll be updating this over time with more information
  • Great vendors you might not have known about

  1. I just took your survey, there was no place to say that I shop regularly at a local food coop. Just thought I would point that out as they are a way to eat sustainably/organic/local etc without having to do ALL the research yourself. It is all in one place!
