The third installment of the Southern Oregon Coast Rural Tourism Studio presented by Travel Oregon will take place March 21st and 22nd in Bandon. The Rural Tourism Studio consists of a series of workshops focused on local economic development through tourism in the Southern Oregon Coast region.
How do you provide engaging opportunities for visitors to experience your local food and farm experiences? Culinary and agricultural tourism have great potential for improving the economic viability of regions with agricultural roots. Whether it’s visiting a working farm, eating a meal with locally raised ingredients, engaging in a salmon bake, or learning how to cook or cure local foods your way – this style of experiential tourism is booming, particularly in rural areas of the world. Do you or your community have a business that could offer or expand a culinary and agricultural experience? How can we better connect our farms and restaurants to keep value local? This workshop is for people who are interested in our local food system and offer experiences like farm visits, instruction on local fishing or harvesting, farm stands, tasting rooms, restaurants or experiential agricultural tours.
Let’s design a world-class experience around our unique food system – register today!
