Every year there is a Village Building Convergence in Portland. This event is organized by City Repair. Local folks and folks from around the country come together to learn hands on about green construction & community building. Some of People's Cob (mud+sand+straw) walls and benches and the bike parking structure pictured were built during the VBC and by members of our community. Here are some photos of a tour that happened to revisit our site years after our expansion. This VBC tour was done via bike. Come visit Portland in May any year to join in the festivities!
