We just got this brochure in the mail for the office of Planning and Sustainability, www.portlandonline.com/bps.
On Saturday, February 7th from 8:30am until 2pm, at George Middle School (10000 N Burr Ave, Portland, OR), the City of Portland will host an event where folks can learn to save money and “connect with resources.”
They will have exhibits of the following:
- health & nutrition
- water & energy saving tips
- yard & garden care
- community resources
They will also be host to workshop on improving your home, 45 minutes long, offered hourly.
AND, they will have FREE lunch, lead testing, and on-site professional childcare. Even door prizes on the hour.
This is a terrific service to get informed and get free useful stuff for your home, like energy efficient light bulbs.
Get in, and get in early. It looks like it will be jam packed with a lot of workshops covering many facets of the home. Bring a friend and tag team the workshops!
