For this episode, I took my recording equipment and hiked up the road to visit Sid Walters at Skyberry Farm in Portland, OR. I’ve known Sid for many years now and have watched Skyberry grow from a patch of blackberry and bramble to what it is today. The Skyberry crew recently put together a successful Kickstarter campaign that will change the farm from a CSA to a model that involves even more community involvement and access. Sid talks about the campaign in the interview as well as how it will impact the future of the farm. The story and interview were recorded at Skyberry Farm in Portland, OR.
Also on this episode is another installment of “This Just In” from Oregon State University Extension. Jeanne Brandt talks about making jam and how much sugar you really need to use.
“I set my alarm for two in the morning and I wake up and I go to the kitchen. I say, ‘I’m ready to work.’ And he’s like, ‘What? What are you doing here?’ ” – Sid Walters
