SURVEY for Portland area farmers:  
I'm part of a group that is working to update the City of Portland zoning code in order to reduce regulatory barriers to urban food production and distribution.  If you grow for farmer's markets, CSA or restaurants, we want your input to get an informal sense of what you are already doing, with the goal of helping good urban farm/garden business ventures to flourish within the city.  You can help us by answering this quick, anonymous survey by 2pm this Saturday 10/29.  Please click here:

Thank you for helping us promote urban food production & distribution in Portland. Your input is greatly appreciated!
