Cultivating Community through Back to Eden Bakery

Posted on Feb 24, 2016

Hello everyone! We wanted to take some time to update you on some endeavors we have taken on at the bakery and how you can be involved.

At Back to Eden Bakery, we consider it our personal duty to contribute to our community as much as possible. We admire and support those that take the time to organize and facilitate events that generate funds and goods to help those in need. Here's some events that we are currently supporting within the community..

ROCK’N’ROLL CAMP FOR GIRLS

This past weekend, Rock’n’Roll Camp for Girls hosted a weekend long event that allowed women to come together, learn an instrument, create a sense of community, and allowed them all to express themselves creatively and openly. The event was a huge success and we couldn’t have been happier to provide some fuel for all of the wonderful, talented individuals. To learn more about this organization, you can visit their website here.

THE FRESHWATER TRUST GALA

The Freshwater Trust’s 33rd annual event held February 26 at the Portland Art Museum will showcase how technology and innovation are helping move agriculture into the 21st century.

They have organized what is sure to be a wonderful event, with wine and craft beer sampling, live and silent auctions, live music, local food vendors, and more! Participants will have the opportunity to bid on a multitude of goods and services from local companies, including yours truly. Their website gives alot of great information and provides a variety of ways to contribute to their cause.

What's happening at Back to Eden Bakery.

Hello friends! We hope you all have had a great winter! As usual, we've been busy working behind the scenes to provide you with delicious and thoughtful plant-based baked goods. If you've stopped by either location recently it is likely you've seen some of these new products and flavors gracing our pastry cases. We always love the shifting of winter into spring because it gives us an opportunity to utilize fresh and innovative ingredients in our products. Not only does the change of seasons bring new flavor profiles, but the sights and smells of spring around the corner certainly piques our enthusiasm about the upcoming months.

Whether you celebrate with a significant other, a group of friends, or on your own - Back to Eden has some lovely treats coming your way for Valentine's Day. Starting Friday, February 12th, you'll find a variety of lovely items at both of our locations! We will be creating Valentine's Day themed cupcakes, cakes, brownies, whoopie pies, mini cakes, and cream pies all weekend long. Stop by and grab something to share with a loved one, or treat yo'self to something delicious.

In case you haven't heard, we created a new and delicious menu item for you to try! We are so excited about our latest cheesecakes and hope you are too. We are offering a classic style cheesecake in assorted flavors and styles, making it the perfect dessert for any occasion. You can enjoy our cheesecake topped with chocolate ganache, or a fresh berry compote such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries. No event would be complete without one of these delicious desserts at your table! You can pick up a slice of this delicious treat in-store, or call ahead to place an order to pick up a whole cheesecake. We ask for 48 hours notice for all special orders, which can be placed via email or by calling us at (503) 477-5022.

Do you have a love for cake decorating? Back to Eden is currently looking for an inspired, passionate cake decorator to add to our team. If you or anyone that you know may be interested, please refer to our job posting on Poached.com.

As always, we appreciate the support and dedication from all of our customers and friends. We wish you all a prosperous 2016 and hope to expand Back to Eden's mission and outreach even further than before. We're working on some new and exciting oppurtunities that will make our baked goods more accessible to everyone and can't wait to share those things with you soon. We encourage you to stay in touch with us via instagram, facebook and twitter where you'll find specials, promotions, new products and more.
