An Evening with Bamboo Sushi ( Portland Japanese Garden)
On 11/16/2017

Japanese food expresses many of the same aesthetic and cultural values as the Garden itself: seasonality, craftsmanship, and meticulous attention to detail. This November, the Portland Japanese Garden will explore those values during an intimate evening in the new Cultural Village with longtime partner, Bamboo Sushi.

This event is an exclusive opportunity to experience the Garden’s new Cultural Village at night while savoring innovative hors d’oeuvres by the Portland-based purveyor of Japanese cuisine. Begin your evening at the Lemelson Garden Studio for sake pairings before making your way to the Umami Café to sample a selection of nigiri. More hors d’oeuvres await you in the Miller Living Room where founder of Bamboo Sushi, Kristofor Lofgren, will be on hand to meet guests, answer questions, and discuss his organization’s commitment to sustainable sushi.
Cutting Back: An Afternoon with Leslie Buck ( Portland Japanese Garden)
On 12/3/2017

Leslie Buck is coming to the Portland Japanese Garden to give a presentation in support of her memoir "Cutting Back: My Apprenticeship in the Gardens of Kyoto," published by Timber Press earlier this year. Buck was the first American woman to learn pruning from one of the most storied landscaping companies in Kyoto. "Cutting Back" recounts Buck’s bold journey and the revelations she has along the way.

Her presentation will include images from the scenes described in the book and also design elements, pruning methods and interesting traditional tools from her time in Japan, cool tools, and more. Audience members will come away not just with colorful stories and depictions of Japan that they’d never have even gotten to see as a tourist from locales incuding private homes, a geisha’s garden and monasteries — but also with new ideas they can apply to their own gardens.
