Redd West is a vibrant food hub with 20,000+ square feet of warehouse space (including cold and dry storage, aggregation, logistics, and distribution services), offices, and 3,000+ square feet of kitchen production space in Portland’s urban center.
A collaborative project of Ecotrust and the tenant-partners who manage many of the facilities, Redd West is evolving with community guidance to become a resource for increasing profitable; sustainable food businesses owned by Black, Indigenous, and entrepreneurs of color; and strengthening supply chain connections throughout our regional food system.
Redd East is a former 1918 ironworks beautifully renovated to offer more than 33,000 square feet of event space. The venues are managed by Ecotrust Events and include the Main Hall, a demonstration kitchen, outdoor plaza, and the Big Dawn Board Room—four spaces which connect seamlessly or stand on their own.
Since 2019, Redd East spaces have held conferences, concerts, markets, cooking demonstrations, galas, and celebrations of love. Learn more about hosting an event at Redd East at ecotrustevents.org.
In 2022, Ecotrust relocated our main office to the Redd campus. Our light-filled corner of Redd West is a flexible base for our 60+ staff members who live and work across the bioregion. COVID guidelines continue to apply.

The Big Dawn Conference Room is named in honor of Antone Minthorn (Cayuse/Nez Perce), one of the most esteemed tribal leaders in the Pacific Northwest. An advocate for sovereignty, salmon, language revitalization, and tribal government, Antone has served for more than twenty years with the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) in various roles, from chief planner to chairman of the Board of Trustees.

Antone has served on the boards of the Northwest Area Foundation, Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, the Potlatch Fund, the Confluence Project, and the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI), including as president of the ATNI Executive Board. He is also a beloved, long-time Ecotrust Board member. One of Antone’s proudest achievements was the successful return of salmon to the Umatilla River in 1994 following a 70-year absence.
