We created The Farm-to-Farm Century to show you wonderful, local, food-producing farms and beautiful, backcountry cycling in Oregon. Our goal is to spread the word about healthy farms and community gardens because eating local food not only tastes better, but it's better for you and the environment. We also find immense joy in cycling on the beautiful Oregon roads, which is why we want to share one of our favorite routes with you.
The Monroe Sharing Gardens is one large plot, shared by all, instead of many separate plots rented by individuals. All materials and labor are donated, and the food that is grown is shared amongst those who have need, whether or not they have contributed time, materials or labor. All surplus is donated to local food banks and other charities. No one is ever charged money for the food that is grown.
With the help of our local farms, the Sharing Gardens and our sponsors, we created the Farm-to-Farm Century for you.
