Volunteers

Volunteers at garden

Friends of Portland Community Gardens welcomes your donation of time and skill as a volunteer. There are many ways that we work together: serving on a committee, helping with events, building or improving a garden, helping with technology, newsletters, Produce for People, Apple Tasting or Valentine’s card sales, and some new yet to be imagined events.

 
Whether a short term event, project, or longer-term commitment, we welcome you to join the effort.
