Camas Planting @ the Youth Farm
December 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Camas, a native bulb that produces long stems with beautiful star-shaped flowers, is a traditional food and is an important staple for many Native Americans in the western United States. Come learn about the history and cultural significance of camas in the Pacific Northwest and help plant 2000 bulbs on the Youth Farm.
This is a family-friendly event with activities and learning opportunities for kids and adults alike. Lunch will be provided on the farm after the planting work is done.
This event is co-hosted by the Marion Polk Food Share Youth Farm and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Natural Resources Department.
