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 Conservation Technician Laura Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.238.4775, ext. 112.
To apply for financial assistance up to $1,500 per year for three years, download this funding request form, fill it out and save it, then send it to Laura Taylor. Requests are accepted on a rolling basis and awarded based on fund availability and project compatibility with the District’s mission.
For projects in need of more funds than what is available through the Community Garden Program, you may apply for a FISH Grant (Financial Incentives for Sustainable Habitats).
