The Pacific Northwest Chapter of the American Bamboo Societies Portland Bamboo Festival will take place Sunday July 30th Hoyt Arboretum at Stevens Pavilion from 10 AM-3PM
Our featured presenter will be Jessica Zalapa Murillo, who won a Ned Jaquith Foundation Grant last year. She will speak at 11 and at 1 about her affordable and sustainable bamboo bike building program in Mexico. Bamboo Vendors will be on hand to talk about bamboo plants, bamboo landscaping, tools, and bamboo control. They will also have their wares for sale. A free ongoing bamboo fan making workshop will be run by Charissa Brock from 11-2. An auction of rare live bamboo plants will finish off the festivities. If there was ever an opportunity to get a good deal on a rare plant this is it!
