Wat je gaat doen
Oregon is one of the country's main food-producing regions. Portland is a foodie's city, partly because of our access to amazing locally- grown ingredients. This tour encourages the participant to grow food wherever they live and gives tips on how to source materials. Even if the soil has been compressed and seemingly destroyed, and like in our case, covered with asphalt, there is hope for revival. I will show you how we removed the asphalt with a jackhammer and give a tour of the flower and vegetable garden. The tour will highlight the permaculture practices used, mulch materials obtained for free, easy to grow plants, and tips on how to create microclimates. We will take a walk through a local park to compare what happens naturally in the woods to what we can replicate in a garden. We'll end the session with a cup of tea together. Tea brewed from herbs from our garden sweetened with local honey. I always encourage participants to visit Our Table organic farm just a 5-minute ride away. They offer a deli, fresh produce, baked goods, wine & kombucha on tap (closed Mondays). It is a great pairing with this experience.
If I had to choose a vocation I'd say, 'gardener' although my occupation is different. As a graduate of Harvard I studied Environmental Science. I've worked in the field of education and conservation. So when we bought our house it had an asphalt yard, but it also had a back building with a 9-seat movie theater which makes a fun AirBnB. We let our kids pick the house when we moved across the country. One day my son started chipping away at the asphalt with a chisel and hammer. Then we rented a jackhammer. Seven years later there are fruit trees and gardens. Come see how!

Waar je zult zijn
We'll spend the majority of our time at the main house and garden of Teaspoon Suite AirBnB. If you're up for it we'll also take a hike to a nearby park to see how the land naturally builds soil. The hike is an optional addition to the experience. Please let me know if that does not sound like something you would like to do. The hike does include walking uphill and is about 1 hour total trip. Total time for the experience is 2 Hours.
