Garden Manager Support
One of our passions is to recognize the extraordinary efforts put forth by the volunteer Garden Managers who make the program productive for their community gardeners.
The Portland Parks Community Garden program has a budget for addressing the needs of the gardens, but it doesn’t anticipate every need that might come up. FPCG provides a gift card each year to the garden managers. The managers have discretion as to how they spend the money – buy hoses?, provide coffee and donuts for a work party? Purchase seeds? – as long as they are spending it on the garden.
We would certainly like to increase the amount of money we provide to the managers.
