Jarrett Grove is the name we gave this project that is a celebration to pay homage to the amazing Douglas Fir trees, among many other evergreens, that fill our neighborhood. The trees are pointed in four different directions, and they have faith houses at the bases of each of them. The trees all stem from some potent, lovely, and sacred geometry.Were pumped that our intersection is going to one of the many painted intersections throughout Portland this year, as a beacon of art, beauty, and community empowerment!
