Keep the Portland Memory Garden Beautiful (age 0+) *Hands On*
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 weeding, grooming, sweeping, general cleanup. Most tools are provided but please bring garden gloves; if you absolutely do not have access to garden gloves please email the project leader through HandsOn. Rain or shine, please dress for the weather. Light refreshments served.
The 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 caregivers. It is a free, secure, community resource for respite, recreation, and inspiration, maintained predominantly 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 4 seasons of safe, accessible, and botanically rich experience.
*Please let us know if you are a group or individual with disabilities or other special needs- we want to be prepared to meet everyone’s needs and abilities for their outdoor volunteering experience. Email the HandsOn project leader after signing up.
