Celebrate! It's been one year since Blue House Greenhouse Farm signed a land use agreement that started us farming this little lot on N. Williams and Cook. We can barely believe it. It’s been quite an adventure and an education. It most definitely needs to be said that there is no way that we could have done this without support!

months ago, but you get the idea)

I also especially have to thank Kevin for his tremendous assistance throughout the summer season. When Kevin wasn’t diligently applying for jobs in public health after moving to Portland in May, he was working at the farm. Many of you came to know him through the farm stand. Come to think of it- he never missed one! Even allowing me to take a vacation one week to see my family! He did everything at the farm from planting, digging, weeding, watering, harvesting, on and on… maybe this experience will help him in his future work? maybe. Sadly for us (but good for him) Kevin is taking a job to do HIV/AIDS work in Malawi and just left Portland this past weekend. We’ll miss him for sure- Thanks Kevin! AND you all will be able to follow his adventures through his blog! I’ll link to his blog once his adventures begin.
