Spring is near, and it will soon be time to start thinking about the Oak Hills Community Garden! With some good weather last season, Oak Hills gardeners grew a wide variety of organic produce. In addition to growing food for our own consumption, we were able to donate over 400 pounds to the Oregon Food Bank! We’re looking forward to another great year of growing and building community together, and we’re hoping to increase gardening capacity, with details still being determined. We’re also excited to have a new garden shed to store our shared tools rather than carrying our tools to the garden each time we visit.
As in previous years, returning gardeners will be given first priority to reserve a plot. Returning gardeners must drop or send their $10 fee (payable to OHHA) at the Maintenance building, 2085 NW 153rd Ave, Beaverton, OR 97006 by Tuesday, March 15th. New gardeners who wish to rent a plot should send an email to Jen Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, address, and phone number. New gardeners will be placed on the waitlist in the order received and will be contacted no later than March 30th. Anyone who doesn’t get a plot this year will be kept on the waitlist for next year in the same order. The waitlist carries over from year to year. The fee for new gardeners will be $15, but should not be paid until after you are notified of an available plot. The garden fees are used to cover the cost of water, new soil, and general upkeep.
There will be a garden work party on Saturday, April 9th @ 9am to tidy up the garden and get ready for the growing season. All gardeners are expected to help at the work party as there is plenty to do. If you have any questions, please contact Jen, email@example.com
