Community Gardens

  1. Community gardens help neighbors & families connect with nature

  2. Kennedy Community Garden - overflowing with vegetables & flowers

  3. Kenton Community Garden - a vacant lot transformed into a vibrant neighborhood garden

The Community Gardens program has provided gardening opportunities for the physical and social benefit of the people and neighborhoods of Portland since 1975. There are 50 community gardens located throughout the city, developed and operated by volunteers and PP&R staff, offering a variety of activities.


Sign up for a garden plot by submitting a Garden Plot Request Form. We will assign plots to new gardeners for the 2014 garden season in March and April and continue through mid-June as plots are available. Garden plots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. When you complete the request form you will be put on a waitlist and notified when a plot becomes available for you. We have completed plot assignments for 2014 and will resume in March 2015.
