Sea urchins, ice cream and salsa don't have much in common, except that they're edible. But, they're also all harvested, grown or made in Oregon. This Monday at Lane Community College, the Local Food Connection brings community members, business owners and farmers together for a day of workshops and networking.

This is the conference's 11th year and event coordinator Jared Pruch says every time, attendees look forward to meeting other people who work in food-related fields that rarely overlap, like fishermen and ranchers.

After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday comes "Giving Tuesday". Charitable organizations are encouraging Oregonians to be generous Tuesday.
