Portland 2007


I’ll be in Portland, Oregon next week to speak at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show on the topic of growing an edible garden in just about any environment. Of course I also want to check out some local gardens, thrift stores, and make that trip to Powell’s (both of them). I hit three thrift stores last year where I bought some fabric, an old box camera, the best watering can ever for 50 cents, and “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” (also 50 cents). I get antsy when I travel to the States because the thrift stores in Toronto are horrible! Your recommendations for PDX goodness are much appreciated! We’re knee deep in snow and freezing temperatures here so any places you can recommend that are big on greenery, spring blooms, and fresh smelling air is critical for preserving my sanity. I can’t wait!

When: Sat. Feb. 24 (at 3:30pm) & Sun. Feb 25 (at 11:00 am).

There will also be book signings at the Powell’s kiosk directly after the presentations. Don’t be shy! I look forward to talking to ya’ll so please say hi.

One thought on “Portland 2007

  1. There is a cool antique, and what-not store called Store II at 1002 N. Killingsworth in Portland. The basement of the huge place is crammed with thrift store like finds at thrift store prices. Knick-knacks, linens, jewelry and more.
