On Saturday, March 7, a work party to help create a new community garden for the Multnomah-Hillsdale area will take place at the Hillsdale Community Church, site of the proposed garden. Neighbors and interested others are invited and encouraged to participate as volunteers.
Save money on landscaping. Reduce runoff. Improve stream health. Reduce flooding in challenging slope and soil conditions. In this workshop you'll learn how to identify and locate a variety of landscape approaches that are safe, simple, cost-effective, and environmentally effective regardless of the site's natural conditions. We'll visit residences, perform a site assessment to look for opportunities, and then return to our desks to collaborate on site designs for each one. Register: swni.org/stormwater.
Construct a split rail fence with Portland Parks & Recreation, Friends of April Hill and Oregon State University Alumni to protect the natural area. Street parking is available along SW Logan Ct or SW Miles St. Please dress for the weather, wear close-toed shoes, bring a water bottle and be ready to get dirty! This is a family-friendly event and all ages are welcome but children must be supervised by an adult.
