#16ANDASH, #BUCKMANCOMMUNITYCOMPOST | The Buckman Sustainability Program replanted three traffic circles with pollinator friendly plants in 2014; we are now selectively replanting. We have also added pollinators to our two Street Graphics - SE 15th and Alder and SE 16th and Ash. After an unfortunate 60% loss of our street graphic to fog seal, we have used this as an opportunity to embellish and add pollinators to our design.
Fri, June 3, 3pm: Wash and prime the street
Sat, June 4, 9am-12pm: Paint the Street 12pm-6pm: Potluck Lunch 6pm: Block Party

Only one block from the Historic Share-it Square, The Sharing Seed Hub is a household of foodies, musicians and artist that love to teach. The Intersection painting design that we created encompasses the sharing that we hope to encourage in our neighborhood. A welcome sign in memory of a fellow neighbor who welcomed all that came through our slice of heaven. We are hoping this design is approved for the intersection of 11th and Clatsop. This Sharing Seed design is a picture of people holding hands around a seed. This design also is a representation of what we hope to accomplish with our home. We want to create a community hub where people in our neighborhood can meet to discuss how to enhance our street, learn, and can share music and meals together.
Fri, June 3: Intersection prep day. Sat, June 4, 10am-3pm: Food, Live Music and street painting. Tue, June 7, 7-9pm: Open mic at the Sharing Seed.

Come join us for the 21st annual repainting of the very first intersection repair in the world! This year's design was chosen, as it is every year, through discussion among the neighbors while coming together over a potluck. The design will feature an interwoven nest in the center, holding eggs with a salmon hatching from one. Emanating from the nest in each cardinal direction will be a creature and an element to represent different sacred locations in our state and animals that inhabit this place. To the north, a bird flying through clouds. To the east, Mt. Hood holding a silhouette of a wolf. To the south, a fir tree and roses highlighting a honey bee. And to the west, a river with the salmon swimming out of an egg. All of the creatures will be holding a red thread, a recurring theme from last year to represent the red thread of life and connection.
Sat, June 11, 10am: Red thread opening ceremony
10:20am: Painting begins! Random events pop up throughout day! Some light snacks provided throughout day.
3 or 4pm: Wrap up painting, closing circle and picture. Clean up!

Our intersection painting is a celebration of our community. Our intent is to provide a piece of jewelry for the neighborhood to enjoy and celebrate.
Sat, July 23: Anyone is welcomed to join our community project. We will have a potluck, face-painting, and street painting!
We are excited to host our neighborhood's first intersection repair project. This beautiful mural is the result of a true community effort. Two ideas were submitted to us through our design idea contest and we had input from our neighborhood Facebook group. Artist Rachel Gibbs took these various ideas and synthesized them into an awe-inspiring creation. We were drawn to crows as a symbol of community. These smart birds abound in our neighborhood and are often seen congregating in huge murders. We came up with the idea to have them flying into and around our circle as a way to express movement. Hearts and hands are centered in the mural just as they are central in our ability to support one another and our community. We love our design and cannot wait to see it in it's grandest form!
We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities to participate in the event. We hope this is the first of many such projects in our neighborhood!
Fri, June 10, 7pm-9pm: Street preparation Sat, June 11, 9am-6pm: Street painting party * Sun, June 12, 9am-1pm: Street painting continued, if needed. This date is also an alternate day if weather is uncooperative.
*Kids activities, music, and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
NE 13 Ave and NE Roselawn intersection, #ROSELAWNMANDALA
The tiny pocket park (0.12 acres) at this intersection is a favorite with neighborhood families and furry friends. Last year, the park received a lovely poetry box/book lending library. We will be painting the intersection in front of the park with a mandala design that grew out of a communal brainstorming. The center of the mural will be a rose - a nod to the street's namesake and the greater Rose City. The four corners of the intersection will be painted to correspond with the four elements: earth, air, fire, water. Help us add a bit more beauty to our "teensy park."
The Woodlawn Farmers Market will be hosting a special street painting event in the heart of the historic Woodlawn Neighborhood to kick off our 2016 market season! Come join us for a fun day of volunteerism as we paint the street with a design by local neighborhood artist, Adam Ciresi. The Woodlawn Neighborhood has historically been the site of a streetcar depot that brought commerce and residences to NE Portland, and excitingly this is the exact spot that the Woodlawn Farmers Market is held every Saturday from May-October! With this history in mind, our design will reflect the importance of the streetcar as a vehicle of opportunity, with a young girl holding up a proud basket of produce on the top of the streetcar. It is our hope that this street painting will secure a home for the farmers market in the Woodlawn Neighborhood, while reflecting our community’s rich history and vibrant future.
#OGDENSTREETMURAL | The Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood in SE Portland is bursting at the seams with cultural diversity, urban farms, artists, and generally good people. We're SO Portland, yet no one seems to know much about the Southeastern-most pocket of this beloved city. We're changing that! The Ogden Street Mural is the first big public art endeavor of the newly formed Artistic Darlings of Brentwood-Darlington. We hope you'll join us in creating non-gentrifying hope and beauty in our neighborhood. We need you Portland!
Sun, June 12, 9am-9pm
Please join local denizens, Portlanders-at-large and a group of tourists from Japan to help paint our beautiful mural design for the intersection at SE 70th + SE Ogden. We'll be painting, have homemade goodies, building Free Libraries, hoping and envisioning for a neighborhood in need of more love and good vibes (not to mention clean air!). There'll probably be live music, too! Please visit the Facebook page for updated schedule and information for this event.

This April marks the 25th year of the "OnGoing Community". Activated by two women with the foresight of a neighborhood where food justice, affordable housing, permaculture and goats were the latches holding together what is now a resilient and tightly woven basket of neighbors, animals and bikes. The future vision holds true to its roots while attempting to creatively respond to the changing climate of urbanity while focusing its strengths on housing accessibility, emergency preparedness, and food production. The Going street artery is a major bike thoroughfare and offers a wonderfully safe environment for kids, elders and retired kidz. We raise goats, are a part of a 5-house-twice/wk dinner program, grow hundreds of pounds of food, host events, practice permaculture and general urban guerilla planting tomfoolery. Come play! We will be hosting a Faerie Haus building workshop for all ages.
Sat, June 11, 10am-4pm: We will be hosting a hootenanny worth of hands-on, village-style learning and creative art projects on. We'll be painting the street, serving delicious local foods, hosting bamboo and willow thatching/fencing projects, some light gardening and offering neighborhood-class childcare! We will be hosting a Faerie Haus building workshop for all ages. Music and shade provided.

#ANKENYALLEY | Ankeny Street between SW 2rd and 3rd was closed to vehicles in 2012. Today we are working to create the SW 3rd Avenue plaza that will be from W Burnside to SW Ash Street. In addition, the alley will be re-designed to be more open and pedestrian friendly. Our goal is to create a new enlarged vibrant public space to enjoy food from one of the neighboring restaurants, or riding one of Portland's new bike share bikes (Biketown coming to PDX in July 2016).
Late June / July, 2016. Check back in a few weeks please!
