Saturday, December 5th • Music starts at 8pm
Our friends from the traveling vagabond band, Bearcoon, are about to bid farewell to the misty Northwest until spring. But before they go, they want to treat us to a very special show at their favorite place… Green Anchors.
This is an outdoor event so dress for the elements, but don’t worry, because we’ll be filling the tent with burn barrels and heaters to keep you cozy.
Music starts at 8pm with a fantastic opening act (TBD) and Bearcoon goes on at 9pm. Bearcoon can’t wait to play you tunes from their “#1 Hot New Release” (Amazon.com) album, El Guapo, as well as some freshly minted traveling tunes. Word on the street is the girls will be performing some brand new cover tunes, as well. See you there!
Where: Green Anchors (8940 N. Bradford Street, Portland, OR)

Join us at this year’s Build Small, Live Large Summit!
This is a one-day event bringing leaders in the small housing movement together to talk about the issues, obstacles and solutions for building community and sustainable housing for our future.
When: Friday, November 6, 2o15
Where: PSU Smith Center (1825 SW Broadway, Portland, OR)
What time: 8AM to 7PM
We will be exhibiting Nicholette and Mitchell’s tiny house at the event, including information about how to get involved with tiny house building at Green Anchors or rent space for your tiny house building project.
The hugel bed is designed to employ some of the rotting logs that wander into our small bay, are then placed together to support soil and plants while maintaining more moisture than a typical soil bed. It is loaded with organic material, nutrients, and air pockets. Over time, as the logs continue to decompose it becomes self tilling and warm, creating, perhaps, a longer growing season.
Last year we built a Hugelkultur bed in a gathering area of the yard. Inspired by Mark and enjoyed by so many last summer, we have taken to careful planning for this years growth.
We also have been working hard on our traditional garden style for more in depth eating fresh and healthy this summer.
The only problem? Keeping the rooster OUT!
We are looking forward to summer events and inviting you down to share!
A local non-profit ‘Groundworks’ has expressed interest in taking over the cultivation of the beds, as they are not currently being worked. We look forward to the opportunity to work with them on native plant propagation and growing pollinators to feed our new colony of honeybees.
