Join Us Around the Hearth

In the evening we come together to break bread, share ideas and enjoy music around the VBC hearth. 

Evening activities include interactive workshops, community building experiences with inspiring presenters, and unforgettable musical acts with incredible talent.  Unwind from the day with movement offerings and body work.  Enjoy healthy, organic community meals.  It's all here around the hearth.


Listen, learn and share ideas on a broad range of topics that effect your community.  Workshops and panels include: 

  • Looking Back, Looking Forward:
    Learning from the Past, Seeding Hope for the Future
  • Food... Ensuring Access in the Urban Village  
  • Creating Safer Communities through Environmental Design
  • Art & Design Workshop: Create Portland's Future
