Our Garden is a pair of narrow city lots located in Portland at 3924 and 3930 NE Garfield Street. The site was was placed in trust with OSALT on June 29th, 2009 by Multnomah County to remain as a community-based garden for future generations.
For many years the lot was associated with the work that Reverend Jeanne Walker was doing next door - working with neighborhood youth in a garden, teaching them gardening and life skills. The Reverend lost the land that the prior garden was on, and was unable to build a new garden on this site.
OSALT is proud to be able to help Reverend Walker's vision come to pass: The neighbors have already done a lot of work on the site creating an urban farm, and plants are in the ground. We will be hearing more as the year progresses. In addition, the heritage cherry tree, which site in the middle of the property, will be protected, as the neighbors wish.
If you would like to be notified about upcoming community meetings, or to get involved in our work to bring this site into our group of active garden sites, please fee free to contact the Site Manager.
