Village Building Convergence at TLC Farm

May 31 & June 1 and June 6

We're happy to be participating in another great Village Building Convergence - our tenth one!  The VBC is a 10-day "Urban Permaculture Extravaganza" organized by the City Repair Project, with natural building and community-focused projects happening all over the city.

On May 31 and June 1, we'll be re-painting our beloved Tea Whale and using earthen plaster to finish our new seven-sided building. 

On June 6th we'll apply some permaculture design techniques to the garden, building an herb spiral and sheet mulching garden beds. 

We will be hosting work days from 10am to 4pm on May 30-31 and June 6, and running a shuttle to the VBC main venue at the beginning and end of each work day (RSVP for the shuttle).  Lunch, snacks and a delightful time will be provided! For more information, contact Jeffrey or call 503-245-3847.  

VBC Evening Event: Sunday June 7

"Singing-Alive" Song Circle, Snackluck, and Sauna
June 7th, 6 - 10pm
We've done it! For the final night of the VBC, Tryon Life Community Farm invites you to come celebrate all of the amazing work we've all done.  Please come join us for a "Singing-Alive" inspired evening where we will gather together at TLC Farm surrounded by beautiful forest and share space through the power of Song.

This is a time to share and learn new and old songs and be nourished by the beauty of voice, regardless of ones singing experience.  We will have multiple singing circles at a time and YOU are welcome to help hold a circle if you feel inspired.  There will be some snacks available, and we ask that if you are able to please bring more! Oh, and we will be firing up our wonderful earthen sauna for the occasion (note: the sauna is clothing optional).

What to Bring:
- you, your friends, and your beautiful voices
- any snacks you'd care to share
- a $10~$20 donation (no one turned away for lack of funds)
- a towel and water bottle for those who want to sing in the sauna

What not to bring:

- intoxicants

- dogs, unless they can be on leash at all times


There is NO onsite parking at TLC Farm, unless folks with special needs prearrange with us (send me an email if this is you). We will be running a shuttle from Riverdale High School - 9727 SW Terwilliger Blvd, Portland, OR 9721,  which is about 1 mile away. Also consider carpooling to the high school, and feel free to use our rideshare board.
