History

This site has been in use since the 1960s when two families started a garden on unused city land. They hired a farmer to plow the site each spring. By the 1980s, the garden was so well tended that it won a national contest and was featured on the Victory Garden show on public television. To this day, this garden remains an icon of community development in North Portland.
