Event Description:
The City of John Day purchased the 58-acre Oregon Pine property in 2017 to create an 80-acre innovation center in the heart of the city. The former mill property will be reclaimed and revitalized into the John Day Rural Innovation Gateway, a location that integrates community, technology, education and commerce with a focus on rural innovation and rural-value creation. The first phase of that development includes the city’s new commercial greenhouse for regional food security and hydroponic crop growth. Come take a tour of the greenhouse, complete with a behind-the-scenes look at the city’s plan for using reclaimed water for food production, in addition to learning about hydroponic growing systems with Agribusiness Project Manager, Matthew Manitsas.
