Tryon Life Community Farm is hosting its annual spring festival, Bloom, and we've got a great schedule of events for this year:

4:30-5:30: Medicinal Plant Walk 

Ongoing activities:
Technical Tree Climbing with Tree Climbing Cascadia
Wander around the land and visit the goats!
Silent Dance party from 8pm-11pm! A new way to turn up the volume and raise the roof without disturbing the blissful peace of the forest at sundown. DJ sets will be broadcast over radio, so dancers can rockout on headphones (available @Bloom).

We'll also be sharing something that's been blooming strongly here: white folks and people of color working together to decolonize ourselves and our relationships to the land--and to each other. We're excited to support a POC-only space at this event for the first time, and to invite other white Bloomers to engage in thoughtful conversations and share skills for decentering whiteness.
We'll provide organic food and drink (by donation) and invite dishes and snacks to share.
This is a FUNdraiser for TLC Farm!  Suggested donation of $10-20 per adult (kids are free!)

As always, we have NO ON SITE PARKING.  We'll be running a shuttle Riverdale High School, 9727 SW Terwilliger Blvd, Portland, OR 97219.  Coordinate rideshares at:
