Keep the Portland Memory Garden Beautiful (age 0+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Gardening makes beautiful memories. Help prepare the Portland Memory Garden for another season of meaningful outdoor experience for individuals and caregivers coping with memory loss disorders, and make your own memories too! This is a great family friendly project.

Garden tasks include weed, groom, sweep, general cleanup. Most tools provided. Optional: bring your own pruners or other sharps. It is also helpful to bring work gloves. Rain or shine, please dress for the weather. Light refreshments served.

Portland Memory Garden, a non-profit organization started in 2001, is dedicated to sharing the beauty of nature with those coping with memory disorders as well as with their care-givers. It is a free, secure, community resource for respite, recreation, and inspiration, maintained predominately with assistance from about 30 volunteers.

The Portland Memory Garden is one of only 2 public gardens in the U.S. designed specifically for people with memory-affecting diseases and for their loved ones. Located in Ed Benedict Park, this little jewel provides four seasons of safe, accessible, and botanically rich experience.
