Paul will be in Portland at the beginning of August.

We are going to have a potluck with him on August 6th, 2022 from 2pm-7pm in SW Portland.

Bring a dish to share - something yummy you made from ingredients you know the origin of. You might be asked to tell the story of the food you brought.

RSVP here, or PM. I will be giving the address via Purple moosage to those interested.

There was something like this in seattle a few years ago.  Maybe more than a dozen people.  It was nice!

Yes!

Excellent!  

Thank you Liv!

I went to that event in Seattle years ago.  It was a lot of fun!

I am looking forward to seeing everybody in Portland!


What to bring...  Maybe a huckleberry pie?

This is great!  I was hoping to set something up in NE Portland near the Kennedy School Hotel, but I struck out.

Let me know what kind of food would be helpful to bring.

I'm glad to not be wearing masks anymore.  If this bothers some folks, they might wanna steer clear of this potluck.

Of course, if a few folks wanna wear masks, i don't mind.

I would like to come, but first I have to ask permission to bring my dog Catfish.  He’s a little toy fox terrier (I know, hey?).  He will have turned 16 a few days before the get-together. He weighs 8 pounds and doesn’t bark. He does not see well.  He gets anxious when he can’t find me. So I don’t leave him home alone.  Until recently he’s had other companions to keep him comfortable, but now it’s just the two of us. And now that’s it’s so hot, I don’t leave him in the truck for more than a minute or two.

He was an accidental dog. I didn’t go looking for a dog, let alone this tiny little guy. I met him when he was four months old and he has been a faithful companion to me all these years. He is frail now (and a little demented I think).  It’s his time now.

If bringing him is not a good idea, no problem.  If it’s ok, sign me up.

Laura

It’s totally fine to bring the dog. The yard is not fenced, but it doesn’t sound like he’s the running away type.

We would really really love to come. We are very much novices and started our very first garden this spring! There's a limited amount that we could bring that we grew ourselves but what we've grown so far we're very proud of. Would love to come and learn more about all of the awesome things that people are doing and get to know some more people in our area.

Would love to meet with other permies and of course with Paul on 8/6  
My potatoes won't be ready yet, but other stuff will!

p.s.  I live 20 minutes south of Portland.

Just my idea: it would be great if Angela from Parkrose Permaculture would visit there with Paul and show it on her youtube channel! She has a lot of viewers (including me sometimes).

The food we bring: it’s great if we grew some of the ingredients, but it’s also just fine if we bought some of the ingredients from the farmers market or a farmer we like and trust or some other source that is good.

I’m gonna make some meat dish - still have to decide what exactly, right now I can’t even think of cooking in this heat, but it should get better by next Saturday. And fruit pie with home made ice cream. And a big green salad.

I am excited to come!  I hope to bring a fellow homesteader or two, and plan to bring homemade sourdough, egg salad from my chicken's butts, homemade mustard, mayo, and pickles from last years garden.  Or deviled eggs, depending on how adventurous I feel that week.

About the potluck with Paul,

Yes Liv, Please count me in.  I'm looking forward to meeting other local permies and interested folk.  It's a small step toward connecting with human beings again!

I'm especially interested in skills, labor and other resource sharing.  We have an ultra tiny urban homestead, and would also like to connect with tiny house on wheels (THOW) community minded folk. We have skills to share in organic unirrigated no-dig gardening, small scale solar energy, free and open source software, solar house cooling, veggie and low-meat cooking, bicycle repair, non-profit and collective organizing, and stuff like that. Having a conversation about even one topic like these would be fun.

I'm working on coming. I live in southern Oregon but my brother is in Portland, so I'm working on combining a trip to see both.

I'll be riding bicycle to the potluck this afternoon, starting from SE Portland! If anyone else is thinking of riding bike from the east side and wants to join up with me , send me a purple mooseage in the next hour and we can coordinate and ride up the monster hill together.

Hello everyone.  My wife and i have been discussing if living offgrid is something we would want to pursue.  We remember there was someone who came to this potluck who actively lives offgrid in southern oregon, and we would be super grateful if that individual would allow us to interview them about the offgrid life.

If this description of a person matches you. Please reapond to this thread.  Thank you

Jenkin - That would be me. I'm happy to talk to you about off grid living any time you want. You can PM me to talk that way or I can give you more contact info in the PM.
