Working in the Garden

  • 6801 Southeast 60th Avenue Portland, OR, 97206 United States (map)


Once we are past the emergency, we need to start getting the many raised beds (40 between the two gardens!) ready for planting. For some it just means removing the burlap bags (and their weights). For others with a cover crop, it means turning the crop under so it can decay a bit before planting time.

In the Annex, we still have some hardscape to complete. The paths at the East end need finishing, and the newly build raised beds need weed cloth covered with fir chips between them to smother the weeds and improve their appearance. Many of the perennial beds will need planting for the first time - a big job needing a crew of helpers.
