 Field Trip Information

  • Queering the Food System in Oregon
    • The field trip takes a food systems approach, visiting a queer-owned farm in a rural Oregon and queer-owned food and farming hubs in Portland.
  • Water Conservation in the Willamette Valley
    • Our field trip will be based on the water conservation efforts in Willamette Valley where the City of Portland and the surrounding communities are located. Water conservation efforts are very important in this area as the water resources in the West have been disproportionately affected by the ongoing climatic change compounded by the urban sprawl in this region.
  • Labor Issues in Organic Agriculture
    • Current organic standards don’t speak to the fair or humane treatment of labor. What is, and what should be, the relationship of environmental sustainability to just work? Moreover, in today’s political climate, undocumented farmworkers face unprecedented challenges. How are farmworkers, their families, and their communities (both within and outside the U.S.) being affected by, and how are they responding to, the hard-line immigration policies of the current administration? This field trip is focused on gaining some insight into these questions, from people who deal with it every day.
