Cultivate Oregon is a group of leaders who were initially inspired and united through various statewide campaigns around food, agriculture, and environmental issues. We are an alliance of farmers, citizens, organizations, and businesses throughout the state working to expand socially and environmentally responsible agriculture that champions food, farm, and economic vitality.
We are raising public awareness around the consequences of pesticide-intensive genetically engineered crops in our communities. Through education and community outreach we are growing a regenerative, diverse, and equitable food system. We are promoting natural agrobiodiversity, pollinator and soil health, seed heritage, and water resources with the aim of reducing pesticide use and promoting food transparency.
Cultivate Oregon is part of an Oregon coalition that includes Our Family Farms, Center for Food Safety, Friends of Family Farmers, and Oregonians for Safe Farms and Families. We are a proud sponsored project of Earth Island Institute.
