A Big Besaw's Thank You for Eleventy-One Years!

IMG_6578 A HUGE Besaw's Thank You to everyone who came to celebrate our 111 years in business last Saturday! There was fabulous food, drink, balloon animals, face painting, games & wonderful music by our friends Rogue Bluegrass & Plum Hill. We raised over $600 for Potluck in the Park from the raffle alone! Some very lucky friends of Besaw's got to take home some fabulous prizes from Ataula, Betsy and Iya, Dragontree Day Spa, Moberi Smoothies & more!

Looking forward to 111 more years - Come join us for dinner throughout the month of September, as we continue to raise funds for this amazing cause.

Growing Gardens

non-profit-growing-gardens-portland If you love Besaw's as we do, you know we're super passionate about knowing the folks who grow our food & growing our own whenever possible. We're lucky to have a garden spot of our own, where we grow several kinds of kale, sugar snap peas, summer squash, zucchini & lots of little tomatoes. It's not only about sustaining our food supply. Our garden is the prettiest part of the block, gardening is a great stress-reliever, and food grown at home (or at Besaw's!) is healthful--and tastes better--than what the average person can get at the store.

Our featured charity this month, Growing Gardens, has a mission close to our hearts: helping people grow their own food in Portland, Oregon by building organic Home Gardens in urban backyards and schools. Their Youth Grow school garden clubs create future veggie eaters and cultivators. Their Learn & Grow classes cover cooking, preserving & more.

Check out their video on "Digging at the Root of Hunger."

Join us for dinner throughout the month of July & we'll donate a percentage of proceeds to Growing Gardens!
