Nestled along the banks of the Johnson Creek watershed, we share this land with all the stories and offerings of those that were here long before our arrival.
Jean's Urban Farm is close to the heart of downtown Portland and is home to Mother Earth School's outdoor immersion grade school. Just one mile east of Sellwood, the land is farmed by a local CSA, has an outdoor kitchen, a yurt classroom, farm animals and compost toilet facilities on a wooded site next to Johnson Creek. All visits to this site must be pre-arranged - no drop-in visits are permitted. This location is easily accessible by foot, bike, bus or car, and does require a short walk down a moderately steep, dirt driveway. Please contact us if you have special needs that may require alternative access. This site is approximately 13 miles from the Portland international airport (PDX).
*Please, only planned visits
