Finally, and most excitingly, we’ve invited some amazing guest speakers and educators  that you will not want to miss.

Heidi BohanHeidi Bohan is a published author, ethnobotanist and one of the regions foremost experts in native plants and their uses. We’re super excited that Heidi has agreed to lead a foraging walk on Oxbow’s land during the event. This is an amazing opportunity to learn about native edibles from the best.

Amy PenningtonAmy Pennington is a published author of two books and a regular contributor to several publications and radio stations. She is also the host of KCTS 9’s “Check Please,Northwest.” We’re thrilled that Amy’s agreed to lead a workshop on container gardening. She will show us how to grow our best vegetables in small spaces.

Greg JohnsonGreg Johnson is a chef and father who has merged his two passions–cooking great food and being a great dad–into one career. Greg is well known for his skills as a chef and now his talents to Oxbow to show both parents and kids how easy it is to cook great food, straight off the farm. He’ll have hands-on activities for the kids too!

farmer-sarahSarah Cassidy is the Educational Director at Oxbow Education, but that title doesn’t describe what magic she creates. She has cultivated a wonderful place for children to learn and explore. Sarah will be leading a tour of the children’s garden and playground and showing us where our food starts.
