Shaker-inspired, Elder Hall, celebrates the spirit and bounty of the region through communal gatherings centered around the table. We offer a warm and engaging environment to host your gathering, meeting or celebration. Our space is a resource to the Portland creative community and can be reserved for photo shoots, brainstorms, and much more. We also host a series of educational events and classes that range from Creator and Kitchen Workshops, Small Suppers and Food Book Fete’s. Every event is curated in the spirit and pursuit of collaboration and connection with our local community.
For the third year in a row The Culinary Breeding Network is bringing together farmers, seed breeders and chefs to taste and talk about the depth of vegetable varieties, crops and flavor. And our own Jason French will be there with tomatoes! You're invited to play a vital role in improving the quality of what farmers grow and how it tastes and learn a few things about seeds and heirloom varietals.
The VARIETY SHOWCASE is an interactive mixer to build community and increase collaboration between plant breeders, farmers and eaters. We promise you a unique experience to taste new and in-development vegetable and grain cultivars, share opinions and break down the walls between eaters and breeders.
