    Supported Ag Revolution
  • . In the early 1990’s a few innovative small farmers in the Portland area were trying out a new approach to local marketing called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
  • . West coast farmers were drawn to CSA because the funds for a season’s operation would be paid at the beginning of the growing season, their crops were pre-sold, and marketing could be done in the off season.
  • . While marketing was discussed, they also talked about supporting one another.
  • . Out of the marketing discussions a group brochure was born, giving customers other farms to contact for comparison, letting the subscriber select the farm that suited them best.
  • . In order to showcase the great diversity grown by CSA’s they created a Tomato Turn-On at Portland’s Saturday Market.
  • . “The strongest memories I have of that time involve the tomato tasting event, held at the Portland Farmer’s Market, first at the old location near Alber’s Mill, then at the South Park Blocks near Portland State, ” recalled Bev Koch of Birds and Bees Farm.

  • . Here's the lead of her : The city of Portland needs some marketing help.
  • . Griffin, it's not a matter of "marketing." It's a matter of the commissioners not doing their jobs in a manner that furthers the goals of the residents who elected them.
  • . A "marketing problem"? Riiiight.
