More and more people are concerned about where their food comes from, how it is grown and who grows it. But if more of us want to eat locally grown, sustainable food, we also need to grow a new generation of farmers commited to sustainable agricultural principles. Who is going to ensure that new farmers can find affordable land close to markets and can navigate the unpredictable and often turbulent waters of full-time farming? We are fortunate in Oregon to have an organization dedicated to just that. On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Leah Rodgers, field director for Friends of Family Farmers, about how her organization supports family farmers across the state who are dedicated to sustainable agriculture.

Portland Water Bureau to Update LT2 Plan

Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 01/27/2012

Ever since the EPA passed the Clean Water Act regulation known as LT2, Portland has been struggling with compliance. The Portland Water Bureau is working on a fast-track compliance time line while citizen and business groups are calling for a more wait-and-see attitude.

At stake is five hundred million dollars worth of regulation driven changes to our water system that are not expected to improve the quality of our water.

The City Council will hear both side next Wednesday and KBOO’s Joe Meyer spoke with Floy Jones of Friends of the Reservoirs for more.
