PEDALPALOOZA! get ready!!

Grow Portland is sponsoring a Northeast Portland Urban Farm Tour during Pedalpalooza! And it begins at our very own Blue House Greenhouse Farm! Well, that's not only because the farm is in a central location, but also because I (Amanda) am organizing the ride. Convenient! 

We'll embark on a fun and informative tour of Northeast urban farms! We'll take a relaxing ride visiting a variety of farms, learning from the farmers, and sampling some farm delights! The tour will end in the Cully neighborhood. Stops along the way include: Our very own Blue House Greenhouse, Albina Farms, Sowing Circle Farm, Side Yard Farm, Cully Neighborhood Farm, and more! 

Have questions? Ask me

are you ready to work?!

Awesome. Because we are having a work party! 
June 2nd 9-4 pm 

(you can come for whatever part of that works for you, but if you could let us know when you are planning on coming then we can plan accordingly)! It may be more aptly named a weed and feed, because that's what we are hoping for-we weed and then we feed you! There will also be more fun things for us to do, spread wood chips, prep beds, maybe even some transplanting. We'll have to see. Let us know if you can come so we can make sure to have lunch for you!

the farm stand reopens TUESDAY!!

That's right people! get ready! 

This Tuesday, May 7,  4-7 pm the farm stand at blue house greenhouse farm will be open!

You have to come, you won't be sorry. What will we have available, you ask? What won't we have available is a better question. Okay, actually there's a lot that won't be available because even if it feels like summer, it's still only spring and our farm is little so we are limited on what we can grow...

ANYWAY what we will have is a whole lot of deliciousness!

bright lights swiss chard, lacinato kale, various head lettuce, pink beauty radishes, hakurei turnips, olympia spinach, spicy mustard braising mix, cilantro, parsley, arugula, and our signature salad greens! and that's just the vegetables... 

Kusuma Rao, baker and chef extraordinaire (, will join us with delicious loaves of bread the likes of which you have never tasted! You definitely want to be at the farm stand for that. 

AND we'll have incredible farm fresh eggs! Not from our farm but Lazy Parrot Farm, located outside Wilsonville, run by Alix Danielsen. ( where they can have more than three chickens.

What else will we have at the farm stand? We'll have music and free stickers (thanks to the wonderful Dwight at peace supplies- you are the best)! You definitely want to get one for yourself.

Come to the farm stand and tell your friends!
