Governor Chris Gregoire will be in Eastern Washington for the "Feeding Washington" tour. The goal is to talk to locals about water projects, farm labor issues and biofuels.

She will kick off the two-day tour Thursday in Walla Walla where she'll talk about river restoration efforts. She'll also be in Milton Freewater, Pasco, Benton City to discuss the Red Mountain wine region, and Yakima where she will meet with the Yakima River basin water enhancement group.

On Friday, Gregoire will visit a 600-acre farm near Sunnyside, a leading fruit grower in Brewster and an oilseed company in Odessa.
