Sustainable Agriculture is a hotbed of discussion in the urban & rural settings. At OHSU, we are making great strides in serving food sourced from sustainable farming practices. It tastes great, looks great and is supportive of optimal health!
OHSU also supports CSAs and nearby farmers markets to help the greater OHSU community access fresh, locally grown food.
There's more to sustainable than "organic." We support farmers who use organic methods, growing food without the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides. Certifications, like Food Alliance, take the farm worker safety and conservation of resources into account.
