Local Sprouts…Coming Up With Solutions

The Portland Daily Sun has published an article about Local Sprouts.

Took a while for me to disavow myself of my fondly-held notion that Local Sprouts is the reincarnation of The Gate, the long-haired hippie freak guitar strumming anti-establishment coffeehouse that I frequented in Longfellow Square in the 1960s. The Gate was almost directly across the street from where Local Sprouts is located today, and there are definitely similarities between the two, but there is an essential difference…We came up with a basket full of criticisms but were woefully short of solutions. Coming up with solutions, though, seems to be what Local Sprouts is all about.
