Don’t miss our last Sundown concert for the year!

Editor’s Note: We’ve been heating up July evenings with our fourth edition of the Sundown at Ecotrust Concert Series, hosted right here at our Natural Capital Center in the Pearl District. These free outdoor concerts celebrate the intersection of music, green living, and community wellbeing. Musical performances are complemented by an Innovation Showcase of over 40 organizations.

Organically Grown Company and Ecotrust are excited to welcome Radiation City with Genders Wednesday evening (July 31) for our last Sundown concert for the 2013 series. Join us from 5:30pm-8:30pm for some rocking tunes and to learn more about the night’s theme of Honoring FOOD.

The “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by PDX Kids Calendar, will have art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Cold frothy beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza, Laughing Planet, and Coconut Bliss. Described as a farmers market of ideas, our street fair-style exhibition features an inspiring array of nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions who are delivering inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprises. Bike commuters will be rewarded with a free bike valet on-site.OGC-Logo-Full-Color-with-Mission.EGO_.MS1_-248x1541

The Organically Grown Company is currently the largest wholesaler of organic produce in the Pacific Northwest, offering strong support to our region’s organic agricultural producers. Through their LADYBUG brand, this employee-and grower-owned company supplies markets with fresh fruits and vegetables from over 40 growers from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. While this certainly keeps hungry consumers happy, Organically Grown’s commitment to maintaining a healthy ecosystem, lively communities, and strong economies extends far beyond the supermarket walls. We are excited to have Organically Grown as a partner for Sundown, and we can’t think of a better host for our food-themed innovation showcase.
