Do you enjoy gardening but find it increasingly difficult to manage physically? Consider constructing tall raised garden beds! NE Village PDX is creating three demonstration beds, one of which is wheelchair accessible and the other two are designed for standing (or sitting on the edge of the bed) while you work. Join us for this fun hands-on workshop to learn how to build this style of bed in your own backyard; no experience required! Printed instructions will be provided for you to take home.


The workshop will be held on June 8 from 9:00 – 1:00ish (exact time depends on how quickly we all work) on the north side (NE 58th St) of the Rose City Park United Methodist Church (5830 NE Alameda). Participants are asked to bring work gloves and shovels (we’ll also be putting soil into the beds and maybe even starting to plant them). Refreshments will be provided.


This workshop is being offered by the Foodways initiative, a collaborative effort with NE Village PDX, Villages NW and Che Figata! in cooperation with the Rose City Park United Methodist Church and is open to all Village members and volunteers. For more info please contact Ian Hardiing at: and include "Raised Bed Workshop" in the email Subject.
