Hoes Descend on City Hall

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Fri, May 1, 2009 at 11:46 AM

Giant TV vans full of reporters showed up at City Hall for the release of the mayor's budget (which we'll blog about asap) but were surprised to find a crew of young ruffians tearing up historic building's front lawn. Bringing a little bit of Obama right here to Portland, Loaves and Fishes and the Parks Department are replacing City Hall's withering grass with an organic garden.


The produce from the garden is going to Loaves and Fishes, Portland's Meals on Wheels people. A victory garden for the new recession!
