First Fruits Community Garden

The mission of the Community Garden is to join interested gardeners in raising fresh produce, using sustainable means, and share its bounty with those in need.
If you are interested in gardening for yourself, friends and family while supporting the Oregon Food Bank come join the community of First Fruits gardeners. Each spring a limited number of plots become available and you may apply for one by contacting Rod MacDow at or 503-601-9042.
