Black Futures Farm exists to repair the broken relationship between Black people and the land. While cultivating produce, we are also cultivating community. We hosts several community building events such as workshops, attend local farmers markets, and have volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We would like to be able to raise funds to put together a more functional setup for said events.
Learnings Gardens Lab (LGL) is a 12-acre garden education site located in Southeast Portland that provides K-12, university students and community members hands-on and place-based education in sustainable gardening, healthy nutrition, and permaculture. Education at LGL supports improved academic achievement, leadership development, and the development of sustainable local food systems.
Sparrowhawk Native Plants is a new kind of nursery. Instead of a traditional brick-and-mortar, we offer online sales of premium-quality native plants coupled with neighborhood pop-up events each spring and fall for picking up your order. Each pop-up is hosted in partnership with a different community organization that gets a percent of the proceeds. Through this innovative model, you’re planting the right plants in the right season for our climate, scoring unbeatable prices, supporting insects and wildlife, all while giving back to your community!
