How would you like to spend one to three weeks bicycling through some of Oregon’s top eco-villages, learning about organic food and environmental sustainability?
“Our riders bike to organic farms and intentional communities in Oregon, engaging in service projects and discussion circles,” says spokesperson Vladislav Davidzon. “They meet incredible people who are committed to redefining our world, while living with the land and camping under the stars.
“On our tours, riders study and apply the philosophies of permaculture, green building, small-scale economics, sustainable energy and intentional living,” he adds. “They gain a deeper understanding of how their food is grown by speaking with the people who grow organic food and supporting their work.”
Riders, who range in age from 15 to 70, have the opportunity to “get their hands dirty” by working and sleeping at organic farms. Some work alongside the staff of CARE, a food bank that assists community gardens while spreading the word about hunger in small coastal towns. For others, kayaking and hiking are on the itinerary.
