Community gardens bring neighbors together, create beautiful productive spaces, help families gain access to healthy nutritious food, and provide habitat to pollinators. Demonstration gardens inspire people to plant their own gardens, inform them of creative plant combinations and clever garden methods, and create beautiful vibrant community spaces. We provide financial and technical assistance for installing new community and demonstration gardens or reviving neglected ones.
If you are interested in installing a new community or demonstration garden or restoring a neglected one, contact our Conservationist and Education Coordinator Laura Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 238-4775, ext. 112.
