Community Gardens


We transform underused spaces in Portland into thriving gardens.

Our community gardens provide a place to grow organic food, get exercise, and meet people in your neighborhood. Over 650 people participated in our gardens last year, including 250 children. Around 80% of our community garden participants are refugees, immigrants or people of color. In all, gardeners spent over 50,000 hours enjoying these spaces.

At our gardens, we offer 15’ x 15′ or 15’ x 30’  plots in which individuals or families can grow their own produce. Participant fees range from $45-130 annually. Reduced fees are available for those on limited incomes. We manage four gardens, and partner at several other gardens in the city.

Gardening allows me to relieve some of my daily anxiety and meet new people. At the same time, I can grow my own vegetables that are healthy for my family.
