The “Little Apple” illustration on the home page was created by Oregon IDA Initiative savers. They are designers and makers called The Far Woods.

Bio from their website:

“We are sisters Sonya and Nina Montenegro, the designers and makers of The Far Woods. The things we make reflect our deepest desires about the world. We seek to contribute to a great Culture Shift in which there is a land ethic, a reverence for nature, a rejection of the dominant throw-away mentality, and direct connection to where our food and the things we use come from. Many of our artworks serve as educational tools and inspiration for deepening relationship to nature, food, and community. Our practice crosses disciplines, including teaching handcraft skills, beekeeping, and growing food, to work toward an ecologically-viable and socially-just future.

We are proudly represented by literary agent Kate Woodrow at Present Perfect Dept.”

The Oregon IDA Initiative is a matched-savings program administered by Neighborhood Partnerships.
