 It's Cob Time again at TLC Farm!

Village Building Convergence: June 3rd-7thgreenhouse entrance redesign
Once again, we'll get muddy together as we participate in our 11th VBC; this year, we'll be hosting natural building work parties to transform our  greenhouse using cob and other building techniques to create both a beautiful community gathering place and also a sturdy thermal mass wall to help regulate the greenhouse temperature.  This addition complements our new ethnobotanical educational garden/ gathering area. 
 

Join us for work parties Friday June 3rd through Tuesday June  7th,  

10:00 am – 4:00 pm every day.
 
No natural building experience necessary!  As always, parking is very limited so please carpool or bike, or catch the shuttle that will be leaving from the VBC central venue (The Refuge, 116 SE Yamhill St, Portland OR 97214) a half hour before work parties begin and returning in time for the evening events. A simple, delicious, nutritious lunch will be provided!

Join us and the Beehive Collective (www.beehivecollective.org) for an afternoon of collaborative creative process and cross-pollination.

To begin, the Bees will lead us through their method of designing and creating large-scale collaborative murals which illustrate complex, interconnected concepts through the use of metaphor-rich imagery and visual narrative.  We will focus our collective creative attention on developing ideas and images for TLC Farm's educational land signs, working with concepts of social permaculture, decolonization, bioregionalism, watershed health, TLC Farm's educational programming, intentional community and more!  This will be a participatory, co-created artistic process - please come even if you've never before been here or thought much about any of this.

Afterwards, the Bees will present their newest mural, The True Cost of Coal, which tells the story of the devastating ecological effects of mountain top removal coal mining in Appalachia and the grassroots resistance that is flourishing in the region.

We will be running a shuttle from People's Coop (SE 21st and Tibbetts), meeting at 1:15 and leaving by 1:30. The shuttle will return to People's by 6:45.   This workshop is a by-donation event, with no one turned away for lack of funds.  Please RSVP to maralena.murphy@gmail.com so we can know about how many folk to expect.  We look forward to seeing you!
