From Vicki Wilson, the Foster-Powell Community Garden organizer:
“Hi friends and neighbors.
There is a nice garden underneath some weeds at SE 62nd and Powell Blvd. Help us find it this Saturday, May 10th from 10-4. Drop by for a while, you don’t have to stay all day. One person and one hour makes a huge difference. See you there.
Thanks for helping us raise money for the garden in April. We should be busy all summer but the plan is ever-changing. It looks like we will build a few beds, work on our water issue and grow a PUMPKIN PATCH this year. We plan to sell the pumpkins in the Fall for another fundraiser. The Oregonian has been working on a story about the garden for a while, watch for a story about the garden in the next month or so!
Also, if you didn’t have enough reasons to volunteer at the garden already…The lovely sisters at Midpoint Cafe have generously offered to hold a community garden volunteer appreciation event at their restaurant some time this summer!
See you in the garden,
Contact Vicky with any questions!
