Organically Grown in Oregon Week Events

September 14th to 20th, 2014, marks the 26th anniversary of Organically Grown in Oregon Week (OGOW), a tradition that began in 1988 to celebrate Oregon's organic industry and recognize the leaders of the movement. To introduce Oregonians to the state's riches, a selection of organic farms, retailers, certifiers and farmers markets have lined up a slate of educational, family-friendly activities that will provide firsthand experiences with exposure to the cornucopia of delicious, healthful foods produced by the local organic community.

"Oregon’s organic agricultural trade is a vital segment of Oregon’s economy, and I’m proud to recognize it and its leaders with Organically Grown in Oregon Week,” says Governor Kitzhaber. “Thanks in large part to the Oregon Organic Coalition, Oregon has always been at the national forefront of sustainable, environmentally-responsible farming. Organically Grown in Oregon Week is a great way to highlight our continued innovation in and commitment to the field of organics."
