Native Gathering Garden Cleanup (age 0+) *MLK Weekend 2020*

Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The mission of Portland Parks and Recreation is sustaining a healthy park and recreation system that makes Portland a great place to live, work & play.Brought to life through community vision, this Native Gathering Garden is a catalyst for strengthening our relationships with plants, while healing places.

The Native Gathering Garden offers opportunities for honoring and educating about indigenous cultural values and ethics through holistic, culturally-significant garden design and maintenance. The site is intended as a catalyst for strengthening and healing relationships (between people, nature, and place) throughout our city. This work is centered on honoring, respecting, and educating through Indigenous cultural values.

Volunteers are needed to maintain the garden and perform weeding and general upkeep. Please help support this wonderful component of Cully Park. Dress for PNW weather and wear sturdy shoes for being in a garden. We will be there rain or shine!

Project Requirements:

  • Volunteers of all ages are welcome to attend this project; any volunteer under age 18 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.
