Closed, But Not Standing Still!

October 31st was the end of our fall season, but there is still lots of exciting activity to report:

1) New Programming Director Jennifer Goldman is on board, and working to connect the Farm with county, state, and local resources and organizations.

2) Plans are progressing for the move of the Lucy House  across Highway 211 in 2016, to join other original buildings on the Philip Foster Farm.

3) Trails Across Time students will teach square-dancing classes at Summit Learning Charter on Thursday, November 12th, and at Winterhaven Charter School in Portland on November 19th, along with some Oregon Trail history.

4) Interested in historic saw mills? One of Estacada’s private mills will be moving to the Farm soon. Contact the Farm at [email protected] if you’d like to help us bring this piece of lumber history to life.

5) JZH board member Gerri Morse passed away on October 24th. She was responsible for adding cookies and donuts to many school tours, creation of volunteer costumes, writing two children’s books about the Farm, and the development of the Historic Rose Ramble.  PigThatAsked small coverHer memorial service can be viewed at
