Get Out and Garden! (age 10+) *STW 2012*

Get some exercise out in the fresh air, learn a new plant fact or two, and enjoy a well-earned sense of accomplishment as we work together to spruce up one of the many beautiful gardens located throughout the city. Tasks may include: cleaning up paths, weeding, mulching, removing invasive species, building beds, more.

Green thumbs encouraged but not required!

Please dress for the weather, bring garden/work gloves if you have them, and wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. It's also a good idea to bring a snack and a full water bottle.

The City of Portland Community Garden program has provided gardening opportunities for the physical and social benefit of the people and neighborhoods of Portland since 1975. There are 39 community gardens located throughout the city, developed and operated by volunteers and Portland Parks and Recreation staff.

Note: Volunteers age 10-15 may volunteer along with a responsible adult.
Volunteers age 16+ are welcome to volunteer on their own.
