Harvest Ride

The Bike Milwaukie Harvest Ride on on October 16th was a huge success!  24 riders showed up on a perfect fall day to take a ride through our town visiting Milwaukie farms along the way.  We visited the Mercy Corps NW refugee farm in the Ardenwald Neighborhood, Myriad Farms on Johnson Creek, Lavina Farm on Stanley and the Milwaukie Community Gardens first Garden in the Linwood Neighborhood.
