We are moving right along at the Bright Neighbor Gresham Learning Farm. Our worm beds are processing our lovely soil and we are beginning to dig rows for our crops. We are also enjoying working with some talented local PSU students to creatively address water catchment and storage for our project. This Sunday, May 9th, we are asking those that are attending to bring seeds of things you would like to grow. We are also looking for donations of 5 gallon (or larger) buckets. Most importantly we need YOU! Bring your work clothes, your shovel, and your skills and come dig in the dirt with us this Sunday and every Sunday from 1-4 PM!
Bright Neighbor Learning Farm 7912 SE Hogan Rd Gresham, OR 97080 For Parking: Pull into the empty lot, you will see a sign that says ?7912?. We will meet at the gate and head in together. Please arrive at 1:00 PM so we can direct you to the correct site.
This group is a network of Portlanders that support the permaculture lifestyle. We connect in real life for farming and permaculture events to share knowledge, experiences, and resources.
We meet weekly to discuss the many projects we have going on in Portland. People meet other amazing people with survival and thrival skills galore at Bright Neighbor events. We discuss and move projects forward that help relocalize all aspects of life.
We even have a worm farm CSA!
On February 6th, 2010, Portlanders from all 95-neighborhoods will be participating in a massive fruit & nut tree pruning project, followed by grafting branches to root stocks – instantly creating thousands of new food-bearing trees in Portland.
This is a project-under-development, with a committee forming each week at the Bright Neighbor group meeting, as we have teamed up with Portland Peak Oil and Transition PDX. The project is a great neighbor building exercise, helps build local food security, and sequesters carbon right where we live – it’s a 3-in-1 karate kick into peak oil’s ugly face.
Come connect in the real world with your neighbors participating in this project by coming to the project meetings!
