A Farmer’s Year: Not Your Grandpa’s Farm Marie Bowers is a fifth generation farmer in Coburg, Oregon. Growing up on her family’s grass seed farm she learned the importance of caring for the soil, the plant and the community surrounding it. These are the values she still holds close today. On Tuesday, February 18th at 6:30 PM, The Friends of the Fern Ridge Library have invited Marie to speak at the Fern Ridge Library. She will talk about her personal and generational experience in this occupation, and how farming has changed over time. She will describe the daily operations through the seasons so you have an honest snapshot of what it takes to thrive in a business tied so closely to nature and the economy. This is much more than a job. It is a way of life.
