The Learning Garden at the Oregon Food Bank has spaces available to help on Saturdays from 9:00am-12:00pm.
Here’s what The Learning Garden is about:
Oregon Food Bank’s two Learning Gardens offer programs to address the root causes of hunger through increased nutrition, self-reliance and community food security. Goals include reducing the root causes of hunger, increasing the number of residents who grow a portion of their own food, supporting development and retention of Oregon’s growers and reducing the number of at-risk youth who will use emergency food as adults. OFB’s two Learning Gardens are vibrant gathering spaces that bring the community together to grow vegetables, relationships and hope.
The Gardens have approximately 1 ½ acres to care for. Last year they raised almost 8,000 pounds of fresh food!
