Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
beaumont village
About Me:
Making my spot on the planet a little better, I suppose. We're taking out the ornamentals and manicured greenery and planting trees (13 so far including - 3 Plums, 3 Apple and a really cool Quaking Aspen), Berries and Veggies instead.

Did you know you can get a good discount on your water/sewer bill if you trap runoff on your property instead of letting it flow out onto the street? http://www.portlandonline.com/bes
What do you love about Portland?
I'm not a city boy, but if I have to live in one, Portland is the place to be. Real people making significant changes. Not bad :-)
My music:
Free! - look (and listen) for it in a park near you - bring a drum and make noise with us! Or make your own noise and invite others to join you wherever you are! - Free!

I Play Guitars and Native Flute, even a Drum once in a while, but I'm always open to try new sounds.

I like everything from rock to reggae to jazz to classical - pow wow drums to singer songwriters - quiet interludes to symphonic assaults

the world is full of treasures

wouldn't even know where to begin my "who I like" list
maybe check out Rachid Taja
Barra Barra
(trans. "outside, outside")
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Alberta ( Last Thursdays at The Porch) - Belmont in spots - Down around Clinton St. - Beaumont Village has grown on me

The rediscovery of gardening (in the middle of a city no less) was a great thing for my family and I



What you see here has since overtaken the rest of the space and

has drifted into what was once a front yard filled with grass



here's a list of what's coming to our table this… Continue
