Tryon Life Community Farm is a rare jewel in a changing Portland - it's a farm, in a forest, in the city. It's a classroom, event space, refuge, and so much more! Right now, it needs your help.
This winter, we have a goal of raising $22,000 this winter to improve access to our land and programs:
Wandering along paths in the gardens and orchards is delightful, as long as you are very sturdy on your feet.
Path Improvements: $4,000
Attending an event in our yurt is awesome, except when it's cold.
Yurt Insulation: $3,000
Arriving on the land is a breath of fresh air - then it gets really bumpy.
Driveway/Parking Redesign Plan: $5,000
Everyone needs access to land - no matter what their income! Keep all our workshops and events on a donation basis.
Year-round financial accessibility: $10,000
12 years ago, a dedicated group of volunteers launched a community campaign to save this special land from becoming a housing development and transform it into a resource for all Portlanders. It's been an amazing contribution to movements, groups and individuals!
However, there are still barriers that limit the amount of people who are able to access the place and programs. In short - it's hard to get here and hard to get around. Most classes and events are limited to warm weather months, as the indoor gathering space is not yet insulated. And even with volunteer labor and donated materials, land maintenance costs are real. With your support we can remove those barriers to access!
This is where you come in: Join the #AccessTLCFarm Campaign with your donation today and spread the word!
