It’s Time for a Walk in the Garden! 

 

The neighborhood garden walk is coming up on June 7th from 11-4. Lets get together and  admire some of the wonderful gardens that have sprung up ( sounds so easy, but it’s hard work) just down the street from you.

This year we have 12 gardens. Here they are:

Community Garden Space Available

Portland Parks & Recreation’s Community Gardens Program has vacancies at some of our gardens in NE Portland we are trying to fill this spring. We hope you can help share this opportunity with your neighborhood association network or other folks you think would be interested in growing food this year. I would love to send you some fliers that we have in English and Spanish.

If people are interested, there are a few ways to sign up for a plot:

•Call the office at 503-823-1612 Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm to complete a short intake form over the phone. Staff speak English and Spanish.

•Complete an online plot request form: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/52116

We have multiple plot sizes available and the cost with a scholarship for people with limited income ranges from $6 – $25 based on the plot size.

Thanks for your help promoting these gardening opportunities in your neighborhood and let me know if you have any questions,
