The Bean and Grain Project is exploring bean, grain, and edible seed varieties which can be added to those already grown in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Oregon Tilth co-founder and farmer Harry MacCormack shares wisdom and stories about farms transitioning from chemical to organic farming. His book "The Transition Document: Toward a Biologically Resilient Agriculture" is a compendium of organic practices, like using compost tea to feed soil micro-organisms. Dan Armstrong, the author of the novel "Prairie Fire", notes that the project aims to increase the diversity of staple crops and add resilience to the regional food system.
