Wolves and People Farmhouse Brewery

HANDCRAFTED ON SPRINGBROOK FARM

Newberg, Oregon USA – Willamette Valley – Oregon Wine Country – 21 miles SW of Portland

From the website
“Growing up the farm, founder Christian and his brothers, cousins, and neighbors loved to play a nighttime tag game they called Wolves & People. Then there’s the fact that ancient Romans called hops humulus lupulus, or the “wolf among weeds,” and that Oregon’s first non-native settlers gathered very nearby in 1843 for a series of “wolf meetings” and soon formed the provisional state of Oregon. Most important, Wolves & People is a brewery celebrating the pursuit of wildness itself, in ingredients, flavors, and creativity.”

Wine and Paint at Vine Gogh Artist Bar

Wine and paint at Vine Gogh Artist Bar. What a blast!

ABOUT
Portland’s original guided artist bar for the non-artist! Opened in 2011 by local artists, we offer step-by-step painting classes on canvas. But wait, there’s more… the painting classes are set to great music, AND we serve liquid encouragement via a variety of wines, beer, and hard cider to get you in the “creative mood”. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. There’s no need to be a Michelangelo; this is art for the non-artist! Classes are posted on our calendar and are open to the public. Each class is approximately 2.5 hours start to finish. Date nights, private parties and children’s classes are also available at Vine Gogh! (Text from Vine Gogh Artist Bar Website)

Lewis & Clark’s Center for Animal Law Studies

I photographed the Center for Animal Law Studies Department at Lewis & Clark this past week. Documenting people and organizations that consciously strive for sustainable practices between all beings and business aligns with my sustainable philosophies. I attended two classes, followed a couple students and even made a portrait of their work-place companion.
I connected with Kathy Hessler, a Professor of the Center for Animal Law Studies whom I met at the Friends of Family Farmers InFARMation Event, September 2013 InFARMation and began to collaborate on visually presenting the Animal Law Department. I had a great time learning and engaging with such passionate individuals!

Food|Waves Production at Converging Creeks Farm

Recently, I had the opportunity to exit the city and enter the county. I explored Converging Creeks Farm which operates Food|Waves (www.foodwaves.org) and sells their produce at our local farmers market at PSU (www.portlandfarmersmarket.org/) and is an advocate for sustainable agriculture. I was able to photograph all aspects of the farm from turkeys and goats to harvesting squash and planting lettuce – I even experienced a fresh meal picked right from the farm; which by the way was fantastic. The entire day was filled with new knowledge and information about fresh food, cooking methods and the inner workings of a farm community. I loved the outdoor kitchen area and the two little puppies running around carelessly. It was an amazingly different day from my city life.

Special thanks to Co-Executive Director Nathan McFall, Alicia Milligan and intern Jessica McNaughton for allowing me to showcase a vibrant alternative and fruitful example of living from the land.
