When & Where
Oct 13, 2022, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Side Yard Farm and Kitchen, 4800 NE Simpson St, Portland, OR 97218, USA
The Side Yard Farm & Kitchen and the Portland Grief House invite you to join The Lost Table. A table that is resilient, strong and safe for those who have experienced a significant loss- partner, parent, sibling or friend. We’ve decided to take our farm grief group and turn it into a dinner party. Take a seat, bring a dish and feel free to talk about your loss in good company. How do you deal with your grief when you are struggling to understand it? Sometimes grief needs company and food.
The Portland Grief House is happy to help carry on this lovely tradition started by and at the Side Yard.
In the hope of offering more people time to talk and be heard meaningfully, we'll be breaking into a few smaller groups of 5 or so people for sharing. Our schedule for the evening will look a little something like this:
6 - 6:15(ish) - gather, be welcomed, serve yourself food, chat with people you've met at Side Yard before, introduce yourself to new people.
6:15 - 6:45(ish) - settle around a small table and share your stories, memories and feelings plus photos drawings - whatever feels important.
6:45 - 7:00(ish) - stretch your legs, get more food, chat and mingle.
7:00 - 7:30(ish) - Come together with a new group around a different table to hear more stories and tell more of yours.
7:30 - 7:45(ish) - Clean up, talk with folks, gather your things, exchange contact information as you're called to.
7:45 - 8:00(exactly) - whole group closing activity and goodbyes.
- a dish to share with serving utensils
- dinner ware for yourself (plate, bowl, spoon, fork, napkin)
- beverage for yourself
We hope to see you there.
