This Saturday, April 1, 2017, marks another opportunity for community members to learn and participate in the Rockwood Rising project. In conjunction with our partners at the Rockwood Community Development Corporation (Rockwood CDC), Rockwood Rising staff are helping to host an International Food Fair and Tempeh Celebration.
Participants will be able to sample food from local vendors, several of whom hope to be tenants in the new development. Many of these vendors will be sharing new recipes that revolve around tempeh, a fermented soy-based protein source that is common in many Indonesian dishes. Enjoy the many different varieties of this superfood, and get a taste of what Rockwood restaurants might look like in the future.
Matt Brown of YBA Architects will also be onsite, to present and share about the most recent renderings of Rockwood Rising's design. Come and learn about the evolution of the design, and about the next steps of the development process.
Most importantly, attendees of this event will be able to complete surveys and make comments on the design so far. Community engagement is part of the foundation of this project, and has already been used to heavily influence the project's design and programming. Let your voice be heard, and see how the community has already shaped the process.
Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
At the Sunrise Center: 18901 E Burnside St. Portland, OR 97233
