What you'll do
Join us in traversing the patchwork of farms in the Cully neighborhood of Northeast Portland. Urban agriculture is growing strong in this community with large lots and aspiring farmers abound. During this tour, you will visit two urban farms—The Side Yard Farm & Kitchen and Cully Neighborhood Farm—each with its own unique story. During the one mile round-trip walk between farms, you will learn about the diverse and changing Cully neighborhood and some of Portland’s alternative food and farm business models. This tour includes a beautifully-curated lunch of farm-fresh seasonal vegetables and whole-grain bread, followed by dessert from local artisan bakers. Gluten-free options are available upon request. Please come prepared to be on your feet with sturdy shoes for walking on uneven terrain. Don't forget to apply sunscreen and bring your water bottle to stay hydrated. We look forward to exploring this urban farm landscape with you!
