Earth Day: Charity of the Day

The Oregon Public House has partnered with the City Repair Project through their Charity of the Day program to offer free activities and mini-workshops from 12-6pm and live music from 6-9pm on Earth Day, April 22. A portion of all food and beverage sales will benefit City Repair and their annual placemaking event, the Village Building Convergence. Come for lunch or dinner or for specific offerings from our soon-posted schedule. Let us know you’re coming (and invite your friends) on our Earth Day FB event page.

The venue is family-friendly and daytime activities will have offerings for children. Coloring contest winners in 2 age categories will earn a cob-oven pizza party for 6 friends at Jean’s Farm. We’ll have a Sidewalk Plant Sale. Free plants will also be offered.

The evening will be highlighted by a full set from Galen Hefferman (6pm), Flying Caravan (7pm) and Owl Antique (8pm). We heard a rumor that Flying Caravan will perform a first-ever all-strings line-up featuring a new cellist in the group (fingers crossed it’s true!) And Owl Antique, led by Trent Price, promises to get your bum shaking.

The Oregon Public House is located at 700 NE Dekum Street. The first non-profit pub in the U.S., OPH highlights Portland-area charities to receive a portion of proceeds and to date has raised $97,000 for these causes. City Repair was a good fit for the Charity of the Day that coincided with Earth Day, and plans to work some placemaking magic to make the already-beautiful pub into an even warmer and more vibrant community space.

Come by for just a pint, a workshop, lunch or dinner with the family, music out with friends, or all of these, and leave having supported an a non-profit approaching 23 years of dedicated service to the Portland community to bring accessibility and practicality to treating every day like Earth Day!

And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 2019 Village Building Convergence, happening all across Portland from May 31-June 9. This year’s placemaking projects will include around 15 Intersection Paintings and many opportunities to learn natural building and ecological landscaping methods. The project link will be posted here when it is available. Check out FB Event Page for the VBC.

BIPOC Placemakers Gathering
Mar

7:00 PM19:00

BIPOC Placemakers Gathering

We are calling for this gathering of Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color (BIPOC) placemakers (artists, musicians, land tenders, community advocates, organizers, etc...) to share tools, resources, strategies and needs for us to thrive in our communities and places, for us to co-create a brave space to talk about the intersections of race and place and how we can leverage our resources collectively to build place-based empowerment.

Our first gathering saw folks working in regional policy, intentional community, various art forms, and conveners of community dialogue. Originally intended as a one time gathering, the group felt that meeting with some frequency (right now quarterly), was of interest.

~ABOUT THE LOCATION~
Milieu is a cohesive group of artisans who have come together to bring art, crafts, beauty, and goodness to Sellwood neighborhood. More info: https://www.facebook.com/milieupdx/

~ABOUT OUR CO-HOST Ayomide Njo~
Ayomide enjoys creating environments where people can go to the edge of their comfort zone and study themselves. Ayomide believes that Yoga and Art are tools for social justice and community bridging.

She is owner of Milieu Gallery. She teaches Kaleidoscope community yoga and a yoga that supports Humans of Color.

Before she became the entrepreneur of the arts she Taught dance, DJ events and became a placemaker with City Repair.

Her class Humans of color yoga is a practice to get indigenous and peoples of the diaspora to move away from a culture of destruction and engage in a culture of self-care.

Ayomide also is co-creator of The Chocolate Laboratory and Chakralot meditation Chocolates. She believes that meditation can be a delicious journey that everyone can experience. Chocolate can be a used as a sweet treat or a tool to support you in investigating your deepest self.

Ayomide is a native to Oregon. She has been teaching movement to people of all ages and physical abilities for over a decade. Currently she teaches dance at Portland Community College and Yoga at people's coop and The people's Yoga. Her love for yoga has inspired here to bring yoga to underprivileged youth by offering free yoga in the park for kids and their parents.

~ABOUT THE CONVENER~
City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve. More info: www.cityrepair.org

The intersections between race and place pose unique challenges and opportunities for us to build upon. Cultivating access to power in place is something that we are learning and re-learning to do here at City Repa

Tool Care & Repair Faire
Jan

10:00 AM10:00

Tool Care & Repair Faire

Do you have a broken tool, chair, bench, etc., and want to fix it up? Or are you excited to just help and learn?

Inspired by our Community Repair session of the 2018 Urban Permaculture Design Course, this day is designed to help you gain the skills and have access to the tools to fix things, supported by your community!

We'll have skilled women and men ready to give you just enough guidance to give it a go and to take advantage of the wood shop at Global Homestead Garage.

The day will begin with a 1.5 hour session with permaculture elder, Rick Valley, on tool care, maintenance and use. We're asking for a suggested $20 donation for attending Rick's session so we can financially support this very special offering!

Then, starting at 12pm through 3pm, there will be an Open Shop with specialists on hand to help you get oriented and rolling on your project. If you want to fix a garden tool, just bring the broken tool and the replacement part (handle, etc).

There will be multiple cordless drills and a wide assortment of shop tools such as table saws and industrial sanders for use, as well as a scrap wood pile to use for some repairs. Please bring your own eye and ear protection. We'll have some on hand but not enough for all.

PDX SuperVillage Network Potluck and Launch!
Jan
18
7:00 PM19:00

PDX SuperVillage Network Potluck and Launch!

~SUPERVILLAGE VISION~
To cultivate a network of cooperatives and intentional communities is to build community resilience in our city and region. This resilience can look many ways: supporting new and existing cooperatives, improving the ways in which we live together by focusing on the systems that are in place in our houses/communities, increasing our communication between communities, and building interpersonal relationships with folks who share similar lifestyles.

~TENTATIVE FLOW~
For this January gathering, we will first introduce ourselves and the communities we are/have been a part of in Portland. We can then start discussing questions around what SuperVillage interdependence looks like and what our goals are for connecting and forming this network? What needs do the larger community have that we could meet by being connected, aware of, and in touch with each other?"

~WHAT TO BRING~
Potluck! Bring a dish or two to share. The house is vegan, but we are totally fine having non-vegan foods in the house.

~ACCESSIBILITY~
The house has stairs leading up to it, but once inside there is a bathroom on the main floor. We do not have pets.

~TRANSPORT~
The house is close to many bus lines. We have a bike parking structure at the top of the driveway, and are building a second for the backyard that will hopefully be done by Jan. 18! Street parking for cars is never a problem.

This event is part of a week of celebration of events and service for the the 10th anniversary of the PDX Permaculture's 10-Year Anniversary Event Week.

~ABOUT OUR HOSTS Portland Permaculture~
Founded on January 15th, 2009, the PDX Permaculture Meet-up Group is celebrating 10 years of events, and one year under the organizational umbrella of the non-profit, The City Repair Project.

We're putting together a special week of events, honoring our pot-lucky roots and encouraging more of our members to sign up and come. There's bound to be something here for everyone!

Social Permaculture UnPanel: Facilitated Discussions on Justice

~ON PERMACULTURE~
Permaculture is not a set of new ideas - it is a melding of understanding that comes from many sources - science, our grandparents, Indigenous cultures, observing nature, creative experimentation. The permaculture movement shares technological knowledge about how to live harmoniously with nature/agriculture, but we are continuously challenged by knowing how to come together as humans to effectively and cooperatively implement these solutions in our self care, interpersonal relations, and at the cross-cultural.

~FEATURED FACILITATORS~
This event will showcase the work of activists in Portland who draw upon permaculture/Traditional Indigenous Knowledge to bring health and vitality into the social-cultural realm. The brief presentations will share methodologies and opportunities to get involved through discussion where the facilitators bring diverse experiences and techniques to facilitate our deepening awareness and practice of striving for right relationship with the web of life.

~TENTATIVE EVENT FLOW~
The event flow will involve small group discussions to activate and connect us right away.

More details and event location to be updated soon. Featured facilitators include Letty Chichitonyolotli Martinez (Flying DogHeart Farm and Sacred Lattice Collective School), Madeline Harmon (Peace in Schools and Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love and Liberation) Barbara Ford (Radical Gratitude), Amanda Rain (Speaking the Unspeakable) Mícheál Steen-Orr (White Men Healing Project) and more to be announced!

Food Forests: Feed People, Sequester Carbon & Save the World

RSVP for the event on Eventbrite!
Suggested donation of $9. Nobody turned away for lack of funds.

What if we told you all our problems today can be traced back to the dawn of Agriculture? What if we could save the world simply by changing how we grow our food?

Food Forestry is a fervent revolution of love, hope, and dedication to growing a healthy resilient future. We can heal our planet and many of the worlds ills all through the resources and societal impacts that food forests provide. Indigenous communities worldwide practice food forestry, and the old growth forests are all but gone as loggers decimate them for the purpose of installing industrial monocrops. We must engage with our landscape and create edible and useful landscapes that nourish our communities. It is a simple and effective powerful act to plant a food forest.

Food Forestry is the practice of growing and maintaining intentionally designed ecosystems focusing on perennial food-producing plants and their companions. Join us as Teague Cullen, the farmer at Winslow Food Forest, highlights some of the methods and practicalities of installing and working with these systems to fit the growers’ needs.

Over the last decade, farmer and educator Teague Cullen has designed, installed, and managed multiple food forests throughout the Pacific Northwest. They are passionate about sharing the knowledge we have gained together here at Winslow Food Forest, so that others can plant their own edible ecosystems!

Heal the Land=Heal all People=Heal our Food System!

All proceeds go to furthering Winslow Food Forest.

~WHAT"S THE GOATHAUS?~
Join as at the eco/social/music artist collective we call the Goat Haus! This community has been Placemaking for over two decades using social justice, art and permaculture landscaping both in and out of the[Village Building Convergence](https://villagebuildingconvergence.com/). The Goat Haus also acts as one of our nurseries to propagate and host plants for the communities City Repair serves. 

~WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?~
In that vein, come out for a volunteer day of helping put their gardens to bed by spot composting, harvesting and perhaps preserving various foods and medicines, plantings like garlic and shallots, transplanting raspberries, sheet mulching and cover cropping demonstration, Freebox repair and extension and of course hanging out with our beloved goats Callie, Kimmie and Dora.

Village Coalition General Assembly

Village Coalition General Assembly

  • N Greeley near N Interstate Portland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

All are welcome at the Village Coalition's General Assembly meetings, where we gather to discuss resources, service opportunities, values and vision, and partnerships.

If you've not been to Hazelnut Grove before it's easy to access as follows: park at or near Overlook Park (across Interstate from the Kaiser Interstate campus) and walk down the hill on Interstate to the intersection with Greeley, then take a right on the bike path until you see the gate in the fence.

Placemaking Info Session

Placemaking Info Session

Do you see the street intersection paintings around town, benches made of earth, or food forests? This event will explore how communities design and install the projects through the City Repair Project. This is a great event if you want to do such a project in your community or if you want to learn about how to volunteer with City Repair!

City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. The many projects of City Repair have been accomplished by a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
