About the event
The earth is starting to yawn in anticipation of a winter's slumber - come help the folks at Black Futures Farm tuck it into bed!
Black Futures Farm is an abundant and lovingly cared-for piece of land in Brentwood-Darlington where co-founders Malcolm Hoover and Mirabai Collins and their team have taken on the mission of using restorative agricultural practices to enrich their community. While we lend a hand turning compost, clearing and covering rows, and cutting back vegetation for the winter, we'll also learn how Black Futures Farm is helping to heal Black people's connection with the land here in Portland. Join us for a few hours of connection with the land and our neighbors, and then bring a thermos and a snack for hanging out after if the weather's good. Hope to see you on the farm soon!
How to get there: Black Futures Farm is located at 6745 SE 60th Ave, within the Learning Gardens Lab site, which is to the left of the PPS building if you are driving south on 60th Ave. There is a parking lot and a large gate and then about 20 feet to the left of it is a smaller gate. Please park on the street and walk through the small gate with the Learning Gardens Lab vinyl sign on the gate. You will then follow the wood chip path all the way to the farm.
What to bring: A water bottle, your own gloves if you have them, and a bagged lunch if you would like to join us for the education/discussion hour. BFF will provide tools, instruction, and gloves for those who did not bring their own.
