Join PSU Net Impact for a visit to Our Table Cooperative Farm, an innovative 58 acre farming operation. Organized as a worker-member cooperative, Our Table uses organic and biodynamic practices to grow a diversity of food for local markets. Following a tour of the farm, we will gather together to dig into some of the questions and challenges facing OTF as it works to develop a business model that is ecologically, socially, and economically sustainable.  During this afternoon of thoughtful large group discussion and more in depth dialogue in smaller working groups, you will have the opportunity to put your developing business acumen to use to generate ideas for this nascent and inspiring venture.  Schedule: 10:30 to 12:00 – Introduction and Farm Tour 12:00 to 12:30 – Lunch 12:30 to 4:30   -- Idea Generator We will be carpooling from Portland.  Details on the carpool meet-up spot will be sent out to prior to the event.  Please fill out the registration form to indicate whether you are willing to drive or if you will need a ride.
