Thanks to all the fabulous work put in by our generous garden coordinator Jennie, the LP community and our partners, Outgrowing Hunger and Earth Art + Agriculture, our courtyard garden is something to celebrate – and nourish.

Children Watering Garden

We need volunteers to water June 20-24

Water wizards are welcome to take home ripe produce as thanks for their efforts- we have herbs, lettuces and strawberries ripening now and blueberries, corn, watermelon, pumpkins and more in the ground and growing…

If you are interested in helping in the garden over the summer, supporting garden education during the school year or working to find/fundraise garden supplies, please contact Jennie (SUN office: 503.256.6500 ext 4872 | cell 503.560.6894)
