On October 8th, I signed a contract to be able to use a third of an acre vacant lot on N Williams in Portland, OR. After months of searching and waiting - it happened! We are starting an urban farm!

Minutes after meeting with the landowner and her mother (who owns the Tropicana Restaurant and is really sweet), I got on the phone with a guy to bring over a load of compost first thing the next morning.

After receiving the compost (and waiting out a bit of rain) Jeff and I began planning the layout of the farm and clearing some overgrown vines on the west side of the property to make room for the shed.
