Free! Register in the form below.
Get ready for spring and summer by joining our seed swap. It is intended to help our up and coming gardener gather enough seeds from those of us saving – that they can SAVE money by sharing in our bounty! Whether you have seeds to share – or are coming to collect seeds to plant for our coming gardening seasons – you are encouraged to join us and our crew of aspiring and experienced gardeners. If you have seeds to share – bring them, if not, bring containers/envelopes to take home seeds you plan to nurture into bountiful crops of beauty and food 🙂
If folks will be joining us for brunch they should arrive by 9:30am and bring an a brunch item to share: French press ground coffee, cheese(what kind), a veggie (what kind), a syrup (kind), eggs, or fruit (what kind), non dairy milk/cream substitute (what kind),
Alice will provide: compostable plates, utensils, washable napkins, teas, half & half, bacon, potatoes, and pancakes (please let us know if you would like a gluten-free pancake option.)
See the our neighborhood flora in a new way as Rewild Portland’s Sarah Hill interprets the weeds and wild plants along our bluff and around the neighborhood. In this intro level walk, participants will learn the principals of gathering wild plant foods, focusing on harvesting ethics, basic plant ID, and common edible ‘weeds’. At the end of the walk, participants will be able to sample a few dishes made with locally harvested wild foods, and have the tools and resources to begin exploring the world of foraging. Rewild Portland aims to reconnect people with the ancestral skills and knowledge we were all once rooted in, and by doing so spur regeneration for the land, community and self. Suggested donation $10.
Dress for the weather, bring gloves and a small digging tool (optional) and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when you register if you want to try recipe samples.
Meet at 10 am at the picnic shelter at Overlook Park. We’ll end up at the Historic Oak meadow on the 3900 block of Overlook Terrace.
