PMC Takes a Break This November and December
Every year, we take a break from classes in November and December, mostly because ya'll don't seem to sign up for classes around that time of the year, but also to give us time to reflect on the the past year and to think up new adventures and experiences for the year ahead.

Welcome to Our New Website
We're so excited to launch this new website and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Many people have helped us to make it happen, but we'd especially like to thank our amazing brothers and sisters over at Cast Iron Coding for making this website go. We'd also like to thank Lael Tyler for his brilliant design. Thank you, as well, to Eva Kosmas Flores, Heather Orton and Adriana Xochitl for their beautiful photography. And thanks to the Chase Mission Main Street program, whose generous grant to the Portland Meat Collective made this website possible.
