About the Organic Education Center

Overview of Oregon Tilth's Organic Education Center (OEC)

The Organic Education Center (OEC)  Through hands-on educational programs we teach people about the sources of their food and the ease and abundance of organic gardening. We supply them with the resources needed to put organic techniques into practice. In collaboration with local business, farmers, students and government, the OEC works as a regional resource hub for sustainable food growing.
