With 250 feet of water frontage on Crystal Springs Creek, the gardens surrounding the home of Lane Brown and Maureen Wright are a tranquil setting right in the heart of the Sellwood neighborhood. The plantings provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife, from blue heron and otter to a newly invigorated run of salmon. The home was designed by the architect/owner and his wife and was featured in the Oregon Home Magazine. This makes for a classic setting for Maya Lovelace’s Yonder that channels her grandmother’s southern Appalachian cooking and hospitality through Maya’s culinary training and the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Maya was a 2017 semifinalist for the James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year. Yonder, which specializes in her delicious fried chicken and beyond the bird, a rotating menu of mains including fried catfish, vegetarian-friendly cornmeal-fried oyster mushrooms and a ton of different sides, some permanent, some seasonal, including biscuits, mac and cheese and collard greens.

You will have the opportunity to showcase your support during our fundraising appeal. Looking forward to seeing you there!
