Grow Portland is the leading, local nonprofit dedicated to school garden education. 

I thought the vegetables were going to taste like nothing, but when I tried them they were really good! The program gave me tips about how I could make my own garden on my own.

WHAT’s New

Help us harvest! To integrate additional math skills and better track harvests that are distributed to school cafeterias and community, we would like to place scales at each of our school sites. Would you consider helping us out and buying one?

1. Purchase the scale linked below directly from Amazon here (use Amazon Smile with Grow Portland chosen for an extra boost) and have it shipped to our office. If you want a tax-deductible receipt, be sure to click the gift box and add your contact information in the message.

2. Donate $20 with a note it is for produce scales.
