On SE Morrison between SE 20th and SE 19th, the Urban Farm Store sits, all shiny and new, much like the galvanized trash cans and what I think are watering troughs out front, planted with berries and vegetables, mulched with hazelnut hulls.
I went there last week at lunch with Sarah from work and two others, Melissa and Molly. Sarah wanted us to see the baby chicks she'd seen on her first visit to the store. Sarah has chickens and recently gave Mama and me six eggs! Anyway, here's all I could photograph on my quick visit to a thoroughly professional, tidy and useful store. Here’s an Oregonian article about the new store.
Identification of the baby chicks.
Inside the store, from seeds and books and growing aids to farm/garden signs and a great clock.
Outside, a chicken coop in progress and fruit trees and all sorts of other urban farm needs.
And on the window to the left of the front door.
And back inside, on the check-out counter.
When they have seedlings available, I'm going back with Lamont and Leland. They have garden boxes on the corner where they live. We're planting vegetables!
