hey portland mamaz...
i am new to DS, but really excited to see everything that's going on here. i thought you might be interested in checking out Portland Green Parenting as well.... we are a community of families interested in natural living and green parenting who live in the greater portland area. we do all kinds of fun stuff all over the city (potlucks, zoo outings, parks, playdates, omsi etc) and have workshops about stuff like making your own green cleaners, gardening, brewing mead, and we have a ton of food buying co-ops going on too to help people buy locally, farm direct and in bulk and save $$$. it's all very exciting and i bet some of you would enjoy participating!
