Designing with Nature: Natural Building & Permaculture

  • Global Homestead Garage (map)

City Repair hosts weekly workshops to build community capacity for over 50 sites around Portland to install community art, permaculture gardens, natural buildings, and villages for houseless folk. For the evening when we share about permaculture and natural building technologies we are opening the workshop open to the general public as well. Guest speakers working in the field will share what their work looks like in the Northwest, with the goal to teach the basics and inspire us to grow our design dreams.

This event is a lead up to the 18th annual Village Building Convergence in June where barn-raising projects will happen around the city. Learn more at For folks attending not in the placemaking program we ask that you pay a sliding scale donation. Food is provided and children are welcome. Contact Ridhi and Kirk at for more info.

Hosted by Global Homestead Community Garage and Shop People and The City Repair Project
