Juniper & Gin

Posted by Renee Magyar on April 30, 2015

Our 2015 barbecue party, on Thursday, September 10.


When: Thursday, September 10, 2015 -- 6-8 pm

Where: Sustainable Northwest Wood distribution warehouse, 2701 SE 14th Ave Portland, OR 97202. Free parking!

What: A fun and casual gathering of friends and supporters enjoying a delicious gourmet barbecue, a live bluegrass band, outstanding travel packages at our silent auction, great drinks featuring our signature gin cocktail, and Northwest beers and wines. Guests will also have an opportunity to tour our successful and innovative Sustainable Northwest Wood lumber yard.

Help us turn environmental challenges into economic opportunity for rural communities. Join us and be a part of our vision for a thriving Northwest with strong communities, vibrant economies, and healthy and productive landscapes.

This summer we’re highlighting our Western Juniper project that is already helping make this vision a reality. This native tree is acting more like an invasive species, pushing out other plants and wildlife, lowering the water table, and transforming grasslands into desert. Sustainable harvest of Western Juniper can repair the landscape, protect the livelihoods of farmers and ranchers, and employ local millers and harvesters in a fragile economic region.

We're looking forward to another fun evening with live music, a silent auction, and a signature gin cocktail.
