Greeley Forest Garden

Greeley Forest Garden is located between North Greeley and North Interstate Avenue near the east end of the Fremont Bridge. Currently 2 parcels, totaling about 0.6 acres, donated to OSALT by Multnomah County in 2005 with the purpose of establishing a forest garden.

The vision for the site is a canopy of fruit and nut trees over an edible shrub layer that, at maturity, would not require additional watering during the summer months.  With the affiliation of the Urban Farm Collective, much of the food grown on the site will be harvested and distributed among volunteers. Bordering a separate property siting the Hazelnut Grove Village, OSALT’s site has been a place for villagers to acquire skills and benefit from the fruit and seasonal produce grown in hillside terraces.
