Central Oregon Locavore Seeking Intern for History of Farming in Central Oregon Project


Central Oregon Locavore nonprofit is seeking a student or intern to complete a “History of Farming” in Central Oregon project. Locavore will then utilize the information compiled for various marketing purposes, including creation and dissemination of educational content, designing and promoting new innovation to solve ongoing farmer challenges, and grant applications to garner further support of our mission.

Upon completion and review of the project, Locavore will offer letters of recommendation and act as a reference for the budding journalist, farmer, historian, etc. who tackles the history of agriculture in the Central Oregon region.

What do we hope to address with this project?

  • Pre-colonial agriculture

  • Crops historically grown here and why
  • Changes in crop choices over time and why
  • Changes in water availability and zoning of water rights
  • Climate differences
