Permaculture Pathways

We're on a mission to beautify the streets of Portland with Permaculture! Our new project Permaculture Pathways is underway. We'll be installing permaculture plantings and artwork on parkways and unimproved side streets.

We've started a test project to test our design ideas under a beautiful 80-year-old Chestnut tree. Groundbreaking has begun and an initial design has been drawn up.

Our first official project will be the Cora and 28th Colors Projects. We'll be putting in some nice native and pollinator attractive plants and plashing that with a bit of tiled artwork for color.

If you'd like to join in the fun you can email us at or message us on Facebook.

Homeless Docs

We have been exploring homeless solutions and alternative housing through our Homeless Docs films. We have been visiting homeless camps and transitional housing and filming the stories of the homeless and those that build housing for them.

Veteran's Village
Our first visit in this series was to Veterans Village. a Clackamas County project to build transitional housing for their homeless veterans.

Right 2 Dream Too
We are now filming the facilities and residents of Right 2 Dream Too that started as a homeless camp in downtown Portland as was given a home in the Lloyd District. R2D2 residents shelter the homeless 6 nights a week. The homeless as using their energy to shelter more homeless.

Our website for Homeless Docs is in the works! See our preview here:
