Portland Regional Conference – In Review

The Portland Regional Wise Traditions conference was September 21-22.  At least 11 local Eugene Chapter members attended.  I (Lisa) gave a presentation on Fermentation on Saturday.  There were probably over 200 people in the audience (many more than I’d ever spoken in front of before).  I was very nervous before it began, but once I started talking I was fine.  I was sorry that we ran out of time and I wasn’t able to show all of my photos.  I will be adding some of them to our krautpounder.com website.

We sold Kraut Pounders and books at our booth to benefit the Eugene Chapter, and former Eugene Chapter Leader, Victoria, sold Sauerkraut Kits (sauerkrautkit.com) to benefit the first Mexican WAPF chapter in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Below are some photos:

I am pleased to announce that I (Lisa) have been asked to give a presentation on fermentation at the conference.  You local members in Eugene can hear me talk anytime, but don’t miss this opportunity to hear the other great speakers in person!  I don’t know how long it will be before the conference returns to Oregon.  If you’ve never heard Sally Fallon Morell’s Nourishing Traditional Diets presentation, you owe it to yourself to attend!  And the food is always awesome, that alone is worth the admission!
We hope many Eugene members will attend.  Please use our WAPFEugene list on Yahoo groups to coordinate sharing rides or rooms with other local members.

July 22nd–26th: "Farmageddon" showing in Portland

The movie Farmageddon premiered last month in major cities.  This month it will be showing in Portland!

July 22nd – 26th
Portland OR
Hollywood Theater
4122 NE Sandy Boulevard
Portland, OR 97212
http://hollywoodtheatre.org/coming-soon/farmageddon/

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.

Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasonably burdensome regulations. The film serves to put policymakers and regulators on notice that there is a growing movement of people aware that their freedom to choose the foods they want is in danger, a movement that is taking action with its dollars and its voting power to protect and preserve the dwindling number of family farms that are struggling to survive.
