It’s great to see progress that also recognizes history. Portland, Oregon’s Ecotrust is responding to the farm-to-table trend by creating a space where food related business can start and grow. The Redd on Salmon Street is a new two-block campus at the center of Portland designed to encourage young food businesses. It puts them close to both the regions agriculture and the transportation networks. By putting the infrastructure in place, and sharing it across multiple users, the “start-up” concept for a small farmer or food manufacturer becomes much more feasible. Maybe something like this can happen in Seattle, Everett or Bellingham? I’d love to hear your reactions.
