A proud NW native, Angela Goldsmith has been a resident of Portland since 1991. She has 3 daughters and various properties in North Portland, spending time rehabbing old buildings and keeping the grounds lovely.
She valiantly continues her efforts to grow annuals, but after an exciting proposal from Depave to turn one of her properties into a greenspace, she embarked on food forestry research. After designing the forest garden, she helped to forge mutually beneficial relationships between OSALT, UFC, and the Portland Fruit Tree Project. She has also been successful at writing grants including one for another urban food forest in Portland. She is finding perennials a much more satisfying endeavor.
She intends to continue her "official" permaculture training, and would like to travel to install new sites and help spread the word about the benefits of food forestry and permaculture.
A 50+ year old orphanage institution is dedicated to sustainable practices and one of their missions is to be as self-sustaining as possible.
