Handmade Gardens Urban Farm
Venue Details: 
Handmade Gardens Urban Farm is a 9-year old homestead and intentional community, located on a 9000 s.f. lot in the Cully neighborhood. Since 2007 we have been building soil over lawn, nurturing edible forest garden, and growing all the vegetables needed to sustain the four resident humans. The homestead is integrated into the local community, sharing knowledge and surplus produce with neighbors and any who care to visit. Humans share the land with domestic ducks and native pollinators. Medicinal plants from European and Chinese herbalism grow integrated with vegetables and across the paths from over 100 species of northwest native plants. As this is our home, we ask that visitors preregister for fee classes, and call ahead for private tours. Drop-ins are welcome for events listed as free.
