Board the bus and meet our guide for the day, Kristi Mergenthaler, Land Steward for the Conservancy. She’ll give us background information as we drive up the Applegate to beautiful White Oak Farm nestled into the Siskiyou mountains. We’ll see how this non-profit farm-based education center, demonstrates sustainable land use and living.Next we’ll stop at Red Lily Winery for lunch on the bank of the Applegate River, and see the stream restoration project they are doing with Freshwater Trust. Take a nap on the way back into town but we will awaken you just in time to see Eagle Mill Farm on the bank of Beaver Creek just outside Ashland. Over 2,000 children visit every year and the conservation of the property helps guarantee the farm will be available for children for years to come. Please come to the Co-op parking lot at 7:30 am to ensure we are able to leave on time at 8am on board our chartered bus. The tour should be back at the Co-op by late afternoon. Wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a hat and sunscreen. Remember a water bottle and we’ll bring plenty of extra water for refills.
You can register for the tour after May 5 at the Information Desk or online
Cost is $35 for Co-op owners and $40 for the general public.
