Seeking urban farmer in NE PDX

Farm My Yard

From: Marcia Danab <marciadanab@gmail.com> @ 5715 NE 48th Ave., last housing the left of dead end street off of NE Killingsworth.

Garden space to share:  Have you heard of the new “FARM MY YARD” movement? Do you wish you had a garden? *** I have GARDENING SPACE in the Ainsworth Street Collective area of the Cully Neighborhood that would like to share with you to farm/cultivate to your heart’s content! I am interested in developing a gardening partnership in trade for the space. There is a large, sunny area in my back yard (south and west exposure), several raised beds and trellises to support peas and beans. The garden area is tilled and ready for bedding down for spring planting. Only organic gardening methods used here for the past 10 years. I am hoping to develop a partnership with a wonderful, community oriented neighbor or neighbors who like to garden, and may be interested in growing food, but does not have the space. I’m gifted with the space, but limited with time due to a fully stretched lifestyle. We can cultivate, nurture, water, and fertilize this idea, growing it in a way that is mutually beneficial, rewarding and fun. If you are interested, please respond with a few sentences that summarize some points of interest about you. Here are some ideas: * How would your friends describe you? * What are your values, interests, and/or passions? * What kind of gardening would you like to do? Looking forward to harvesting with you! Farm my yard is an idea from my friend Albert. Feel free to visit his website at: http://farmmyyard.org/

Measure 80 – Vote Yes – Marijuana Legalization in Oregon

yes on Measure 80

I just put hemp protein powder in my smoothie. I wear hemp pants (and love them). As a farmer, I’d love to be able to grown my own and share it with friends. Let’s get some sensible marijuana legalization and hemp legalization going here in Oregon – vote yes, and encourage your friends to, also. Thank you!
