Updated COVID-19 safety guidance starting November 18, 2020
To help protect our community from the rapid spread of COVID-19, PP&R is following guidance from public health authorities and instructions from elected officials. For detailed information, please visit portland.gov/parks/covid-19-updates.
Portland's community gardens are vibrant spaces that reflect the diversity of the neighborhoods in which they are located. As a member of the community, each gardener shall follow the garden policies that layout best practices for gardening in a shared space on public land.
A grassroots effort in which community gardeners harness their ability to produce food by fulfilling the needs of the hungry. In concert with hunger relief agencies, the program seeks to provide Portland’s emergency food shelters with fresh, nutritious, organic, locally grown food.
Submitting a request form adds your name to the waitlist for your selected garden(s). We assign plots each year February to June, as space is available. If there are no available plots in your preferred garden(s), your name will stay on the waitlist for the next year.
Registered gardeners who are interested in transferring to a different garden plot or garden location should submit a request form by December 1. Transfer requests are determined by plot availability and your original waitlist date. Transfers are processed in December and January each year.
