Oregon Tilth offices closed for Memorial Day, May 28
Oregon Tilth will be closed in recognition of Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, 2018. We will reopen on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 9:00am PST. During our closure, the hotlines will be unavailable for fielding calls, but all messages will be returned as soon as possible upon reopening.
Oregon Tilth understands veterans face significant challenges — transitioning back to civilian life, unemployment, depression and more — when returning from active duty. Our farmer veteran program exempts any former military-owned farms from base certification fees in support of their transition to a new agricultural career. We salute our veterans for their service and sacrifice.
