We’re quite fond of all of the following businesses; please visit our Partners page to view a few that we’re especially attached to.
Thanks to Canvas Dreams (which acquired our first green web host, Taproot), we have a green website! We look forward to having as great of a relationship with Canvas Dreams as we did with the folks at Taproot.
Foster Feed is located in Lents, just down the hill from Zenger Farm. It is convenient for us to shop there, and when we do, we get what we need.
Linnton is an awesome little town, which lots of folks on Sauvie Island and in St. Johns find very accessible. And the people at the Feed & Seed are great!
Have you ever wished for a better way to deal with slugs and snails in your garden than slug bait or midnight garden raids? For an innovative, sustainable approach to reducing mollusk populations, check out Miss Snail Pail.
Mt. Scott Fuel Co. is a fourth-generation family-run business. It is the prime source of barkdust, mulch, and stone in our area, and one of its two locations is right in our backyard.
Concentrates Northwest has been supplying our region with organic agricultural products since 1938. The shop stocks soil amendments, meals, fertilizer, compost, livestock feeds, supplements, chicken supplies, pet foods, and a wide variety of salts.
We go to Parr for our wood products because it’s locally-owned.
Pistils stocks local and sustainably grown flora and fauna, including heritage breed chicks and supplies. (This is where we bought our first three lovely ladies.) The shop also offers landscape design services, seasonal workshops, and worm bin worms.
We’re lucky to be located within walking distance from one of this company’s two unique southeast Portland locations. Both stores stock a broad selection of garden supplies and plants; the Division St. location offers landscape design services, as well.
If you don’t need a full-service chicken coop builder, and want to do it yourself, The Garden Coop’s plans are a GREAT way to go. They are very detailed and customizable for a variety of situations. If you buy the plans and then it turns out you don’t want to do it yourself, Independence Gardens can help you put your Garden Coop together.
We bought our printer and always buy our ink at this local business, a long-time resident of the community.
If you hate to throw things away, or you like to use old things in new ways, the ReBuilding Center is the place for you! This Our United Villages project offers used building and construction materials and deconstruction services. Be sure to make a list of what you need and take the dimensions; you’re guaranteed to find something at the store to meet your needs.
Winks Hardware, located at SE 2nd and Stark, has served the Portland community since 1909. The store’s selection is unparalleled, and service is remarkably good.
Wichita Feed & Hardware is a lovely small shop that stocks a broad array of supplies and even offers customers the chance to reconnect with old friends. We routinely buy wheat straw there.
Before it was an LLC, Independence Gardens began as the newest division of Wolfgang Associates, Inc. (WAI), a family-owned healthcare consulting services business that has been operating continuously in the Portland area since 1986. WAI currently administers our drug-free workplace policy.
