Have you seen Montavilla’s newest mural yet? It graces the farmers market lot and its message, Sow Radical Seeds, was chosen and painted by an all-women-team of artists:
Girl Mobb
– Portland’s own N.O. Bonzo

It depicts two strong women, sowing the seeds of radical community-driven change, nurturing a more sustainable world where communities have food security, food sovereignty, and equitable access to healthy nutritious foods. The mural came into existence thanks to efforts by the Montavilla Neighborhood Association and the Portland Street Art Alliance. Together with the Montavilla Farmers Market, they’ll be officially introducing the mural to the neighborhood Monday night, Oct. 22nd at 6:30 PM at Bipartisan Cafe.

Come learn more about the artists and the women-centered imagery they use in their work, the community partnership that produced the mural, as well as hear from two of the market’s farmers: Javier Lara of Anahuac Produce and Lily Matlock of Lil’ Starts. It’s an opportunity meet the people who are sowing radical seeds in Montavilla, and soak up some inspiration for your own community good works!

A fundraiser is underway to pay the artists. Any amount of gift, as generous as you’re able, will show your support for their time and creativity. Please make your donation today!
