Program Information
The Friends of the Memory Garden (FPMG), a non-profit organization set up to provide maintenance support and education outreach for the Portland Memory Garden, managed the construction of Ed Benedict Community Garden and assisted with outreach. The City of Portland provided soil amendments, wood chips, and permanent plant material for the garden.

Historical Information
In 1994, a master plan was created for Ed Benedict Park which included a community garden. In 2011, the construction of the Ed Benedict Community Garden began on the open-grass field just east of the Portland Memory Garden. The garden completes the master plan for the eastern block of the park and provides the Lents Neighborhood land for growing food.
