Tryon Life Community Farm continues to build support despite judge's eviction ruling

Residents of Tryon Life Community farm were just advised that Multnomah County Circuit Judge Hannon chose to overlook procedural and substantive objections and order the residents evicted. TLC Farm is rapidly becoming one of the city's most widely supported centers for environmental education and sustainability demonstration, and has assembled financial backing to purchase the land. However Karl Marlantes, the landowner, has said he needs to evict the residents to make it easier to turn the land into a housing development. Residents plan to appeal.
