July 13th, 2017 Twilight Tour: Clackamas Woodland Farmer of the Year Nominee Satori Springs Woodlands

11:00am - 1:00pm

Mark your calendar for the summer Twilight Tour of Satori
Springs Woodlands. Satori Springs Woodlands, along with Christopher Bridge Winery, is managed by Chris Carlberg and family. Chris grew up on this farm and has been tending trees for over 50 years,
creating an increasing diversity of woodland patches adding up to about half of the 80-acre farm. He has a passion for showing visitors the benefits and values sustained by small farms and
woodlands. Progress towards the Carlbergs’ vision
and goals will be easy to see on the tour, including:
• Providing a “bridge” to connect people to working farm and
forest lands
• Improving health and productivity of woodlands
• Enhancing natural beauty and spiritual values
• Controlling blackberry and other invasive species by replacing them with trees
• Increasing woodland area by planting trees on old pasture land
• Producing valuable wood products supporting the family farm-forest enterprise
• Engaging the next generation in sustaining the family farm-forest
