Community Events at Fraga Farm: Green Your Clean, Tree Planting Party + More

Reservations now open for free workshop: make your own laundry soap and cleaning spray. Book now.


As the winter chill gives way to the gentle warmth of March in Oregon, sitting beneath the stark branches of orchard trees, the sound of frogs in the background, I find myself reflecting on the changing climate and its impacts on our local community and environment.

With recent weather extremes highlighting the urgent need for action, at Fraga Farm, we're stepping up to embrace sustainability and invite you to join us in making a difference.


Embracing Sustainable Alternatives

Innovations in Everyday Life

From toothpaste tablets to laundry detergent sheets and shampoo bars, the trend towards eco-friendly alternatives is undeniable. These innovations offer a glimpse into a world where sustainability is not just possible but practical and preferred.

Workshop: Green Your Clean

We're thrilled to introduce our "Green Your Clean" workshop at Fraga Farm. This workshop is the first in a series of community teach-ins aimed at sharing knowledge on sustainable living practices.

We'll show you how to make a cleaning spray and laundry soap using soap scraps and other natural ingredients.

Plus, spend time with the goats!

It's a fantastic opportunity to learn, engage, and take home a new set of skills to green your clean.

Spaces are limited. Reserve your spot today!


Planting Hope for the Future

The Power of Trees

The loss of trees in recent storms has been a hard hit for many, including us. However, we see this as a call to action. We're committing to annual tree planting events, understanding that each tree we plant is a step towards a more sustainable future and an act of faith in the future.

From creating shade to introducing climate-resilient species like fig trees, we're looking at greening in innovative ways.

Weathering the Storm

The unpredictable weather patterns have been challenging, especially for those of us in farming and market vending. Yet, we've noticed a shift in the community's awareness and actions towards mitigating climate impact. The movement towards sustainability is growing, proving that we're not alone in this fight.

Events: Community Tree Planting + Pruning Party

This Spring, we're excited to host a community tree planting and willow house pruning party. It's more than just planting; it's about creating a legacy for the future and having fun at the same time.

We'll also be using biochar compost to ensure these new trees thrive. Plus, you can take a (free!) bag home for your own gardens.
