Urban Farm Store's storied urban farmer Robert Litt quit his job as a landscape architect to form this beloved bucolic boutique—offering the metropolitan masses a chance at their own barnyard bliss with supplies such as organic vegetables (starting at $2.95) and organic fertilizers (bulk, priced as marked). Use your digging skills for good instead of graves when you plant a fruit tree ($12.95 to $27.95). Or nurture a bountiful garden bed using organic potting soil (two cubic feet for $12), which is better than willing plants to grow by rubbing your genie-infested wishing sweater. Urban Farm Store also offers beer-making supplies, cheese-making classes, and pasture-raised meat and eggs far superior to meat and eggs conjured from thin air by starving birthday-party magicians. For the ultimate farm feat, however, adopt and bring home a baby chick ($4.95). These infantile egg producers arrive at the store on certain dates and sell quickly. Urban Farm Store also hosts free classes on basic chicken care every other Thursday at 6:30 p.m., during which they'll explain why it's better to feed chicks with organic chicken feed ($21) than molding clay and clock parts.

Founded by a college student in 1999, Green Thumb Landscape & Maintenance has since blossomed into a full-service yard-care authority, tackling projects ranging from residential landscaping to intricate redesigns at the Portland International Airport and the Oregon State Hospital. The team of professional technicians can transform overgrown lawns into meticulously landscaped works of art dappled with stone walkways, fire pits, water features, and sprinkler systems. They overhaul scruffy yards and dispose of debris offsite during full-scale renovations that encourage new, healthy foliage to bloom, and they revivify dowdy turf with chromatic seasonal flower beds, Christmas lights, and tie-dyed jack-o'-lanterns.
