History

The Brentwood Community Garden was established in 1997 on the Green Thumb property, jointly owned by Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) and Portland Public Schools. The garden features several perennial edible plants including figs, grapes, seaberries, currants, and more. In 2010, additional space was converted to community garden beds near the intersection of SE Cooper ST and SE 57th AVE. This new garden area was named Brentwood North and the older section renamed Brentwood South.

To the north of Brentwood North Community Garden lies the historic Green Thumb Orchard which is co-operatively managed by PP&R and neighborhood volunteers. The orchard is planted with several varieties of fruit trees including apples, cherries, plums, persimmons, quince and pears. For volunteer opportunities at the Green Thumb Orchard, please visit our Volunteer Information page.
