Hey Portland! It’s always a great day when you get a break from the rain- wouldn’t you agree (even if only for a few hours)? Also a good reminder that it’s officially Spring and time to start thinking about new goals. So I challenge you Portlanders- what’s next for you? How will you achieve those goals you’ve been after? What are places you’ve never been? How many times did you get out to the Coast or enjoy the mountain rivers last year?
Now is a great time to think about your next adventures and plan accordingly. Some thoughts? Try going out to the John Day River and enjoy some good old bass fishing. Or how about floating down the Clackamas River with some friends? Some small ideas to get the wheels turning.
Next on the list, go to the Scenic Gorge and spend a night or two in Hood River. It’s easy to sit back and watch the kite boarders go by while sitting down at the Events Site and enjoying a Gorge Burger at the SANDBARcafe. Feeling even more adventurous? How’s about giving it a go yourself? Take lessons and get out on the water by trying out windsurfing or kayaking. Pick fresh pears, apples and berries at the local farms. On the way back- drive Highway 35 and enjoy the lush beauty of Mt Hood’s National Forest.
Get those wheels turning Portland and get ready for Summer Fun! One of the best opportunities to fully discover what Oregon’s about! Dry Desert, Green Forests, Famers Markets, Mountian Rivers, Coastlines and just about every outdoor adventure you could possibly dream up in 2 hour car trip! Cheers!
We are excited to announce that the CSA Delivery program is back for 2012! In order to best inform you about the benefits of joining a CSA, Linda from Winter Green Farm will be holding a Q&A session in the lobby on Thursday, March 15th from 5PM – 6PM, then conducting a more in-depth presentation in the Sapphire Room from 6PM – 7PM.
Winter Green Farm is an Oregon based, family operated farm that delivers local, organically grown fruit, vegetables and herbs straight to Indigo either weekly or bi-weekly, depending on your share order. Each delivery is chalked full of delicious and nutritious food that can easily be shared with neighbors. It’s a great way to save time at the grocery, while supporting local farmers.

Susan Szenasy, the Editor in Chief of Metropolis magazine will be a special guest of Indigo@12|West on June 21st and 22nd. Since 1986 she has led METROPOLIS, the award-winning New York City-based magazine of architecture, culture, and design through years of landmark design journalism, achieving domestic and international recognition. She is internationally recognized as an authority on sustainability and design. In 2001, she made a personal commitment to reduce her ecological footprint, by moving to a small, 400+ square foot loft space in New York’s East Village – embracing the concept of 20-minute living, as well.
Here in Portland, at the invitation of Gerding Edlen to explore issues of sustainability and meet with leaders in the green building industry, higher education and culture, the featured event on Tuesday, June 21st will be a public discussion at the Gerding Theater at the Amory, from 12-1:30 PM. Moderated by Szenasy – the theme is “Reinforcing A Sustainable Community,” and will explore such issues as the realities of achieving net zero, sustainability and social justice at the grassroots level, and the capacity of community to affect a shared and collaborative approach to the environmental urbanist movement.
