foster_powell_garden_fall_fest

It’s time to celebrate! The garden has its legs!

Saturday, October 24th from 4 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. is the 2nd Annual Fall Celebration at the Foster Powell Community Garden and it is very special because it is the first time you can see the complete vision of the garden.

Join the Foster Powell Community Garden for live music, snacks, games, pumpkin and costume contests and raffle prizes. Best of all, get a load of this very special garden (you know: asphalt lot, all raised beds, we collect all of our water) and find out how you can get a plot in February 2016.

When: Saturday, October 24th
Time: 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Location: SE 62nd Ave. and SE Powell Blvd.

To register for the event, visit the Fall Fest Facebook event.

Send Us Your Suggestions for Graffiti Removal

Know of a graffiti eye-sore in your part of Foster-Powell? Want to do something about it?

Next month’s Foster Powell Cleanup will be held at Marysville Elementary on Sunday, Nov 1st. Part of this cleanup will involve a partnership with the City of Portland to remove graffiti from our neighborhood. But, before that can happen, we need YOUR help creating a list of areas tagged with graffiti.

So have at it.

Send an email to fopocleanup@gmail.com with locations in Foster-Powell that need graffiti removal. Please be specific in your email: include cross streets and any other identifying information that will help locate the graffiti.

Thanks in advance for your help!
