Learning Garden 1: food for sustenance


The mission of Kahnaway Art & Ecology is to provide a place that encourages artists and community members to grow personally, intellectually, and artistically. Located in the Columbia River Gorge, Kahnaway offers residencies, workshops, and other educational experiences that foster the relationships between art, humanity, and the natural world. The Scenic Gorge acts as the place that is essential to cultivating such relationships and to spurring creativity and innovation between art and ecology. Kahnaway is committed to protecting and enhancing the land while providing the educational facilities that work in harmony with and encourage the environmental and economic sustainability of the Gorge.
