Salmon Safe Saturday

Saturday, August 12 - Saturday, August 12- 12pm to 5pm

Central Co-op

Join us, Stewardship Partners and Organically grown company for a celebration of salmon and the people who keep them safe!

The farms and other businesses that participate in Stewardship Partners’ Salmon-Safe certification program are working to keep our streams safe for this keystone species that is critical not only to our ecology, but our economy as well.

So come in this Saturday and taste delicious habitat-friendly food and drink, including Salmon-Safe produce from Organically Grown Company’s LADYBUG brand. Look for "Salmon Safe" tags on certified products throughout the store - especially in our produce, beer and wine aisles!

1pm to 4pm: Taste fresh produce from Organically Grown Company!
Organically Grown Company’s LADYBUG brand of produce represents family-owned and operated, organic and Salmon-Safe certified farms through the Pacific Northwest. Salmon-Safe is a non-profit certifier that assesses on-farm biodiversity, water conservation and quality land management. The program helps keep agricultural watersheds clean enough for native salmon to spawn and thrive, allowing customers to be assured that they are supporting the habitats of native species and local family-owned farms.

1pm to 5pm: Meet the folks from Stewardship Partners
Stewardship Partners is a Seattle-based non-profit conservation organization that helps private landowners restore and preserve Washington State’s natural landscapes. They partnered with Portland-based Salmon-Safe, Inc. in 2004 to bring the independent eco-label to the Puget Sound region. Look out for our friend Sal the Salmon who will be making an appearance in the afternoon.

3pm to 5pm: Adult Beverage Tasting (21+)
