The Extension Service is a resource for producers of all sizes who want the latest, research-based information. We have several regional faculty who provide support for small farms and commercial agriculture in Clackamas County.
Small Farm School is a full day event with hands on and classroom workshops for beginning farmer and small acreage rural landowners. Join us the first Saturday of September at Clackamas Community College.
Field and classroom workshops include marketing, blueberry care, pasture establishment, small engine basics, composting, soil management, tractor safety and operation, on farm veterinary care and much more.
The Oregon Seed Certification Service provides a service to the public for the maintenance and increase of quality seed and propagating material. The service is provided to insure varietal purity and seed quality through review and retention of crop production records and a series of field and laboratory evaluations.
