I am looking to start planning a medium-large garden for eventual CSA contribution but don't have the resources right now. All of the community gardens have a waiting list and I haven't found any land I would be interested in purchasing. I have some seeds, fertilizer, worms, and skillllls. Let me know if you have any non-shaded un-used spots! I also use aquaponics so if you have unused building space and don't mind using some electricity for lights and a small pump we could talk fish, too. Deftreaktor@hotmail.com is my email.

This year I want to share the clearing, planting and maintaining in my yard, towards a much bigger organic garden. Issue is being short on time/resources. Ideal person(s) is already knowledgeable about gardening, has own tools, and is willing to lead efforts and instruction (having more time and energy than money). I bring enthusiasm, land, water, MATURE STARTS, SEEDS, and a desire to learn. However, I'm totally open to other situations or ideas. Thank you!

We've got some sunny front yard space that we would like to offer to a gardener who is inspired to grow but doesn't have the space.  We will offer free use of the land and a water source to someone who is willing to prep, plant, and maintain a garden (preferably without the use of herbicides or pesticides).  The yard space is roughly 25' by 15' plus there is a strip between the sidewalk and road that is about 25' by 2.5'.  There's actually some side yard space too, but it gets less sun.  Send me a message if you are interested and I will update this post if the space gets claimed...

Hello everyone, I just moved to Portland and live in Montavilla. I have a small backyard which I plan on putting 2 raised garden beds this Spring.

We just got into our community garden plot in the Orenco Station area of Hillsboro at Sonrise Church. Last I heard there were still a few plots available. Contact the City of Hillsboro if interested!

I have a small city yard inner SE. So the garden is wherever I can find a spot. The garden spots need prepping, planting, etc. I'd like to make the best use of the small spaces. Plan to lift sod and plant the strip as well. Also, I'm interested in harvesting fruit.

I have a yard that I need help with. I have about 6 plum trees, an apple tree and a whole lot of space in NE Portland. Close to 15th and Fremont.

Looking for a place to grow in North Portland, or a person to share a potential space. I'm in the Arbor Lodge/Overlook neighborhoods (on the border) and have a courtyard in my apartment complex that could potentially be grown in. Just have to pitch a proposal to the owners. Otherwise, I would love to find someone's yard that is all set up, just waiting for a grower.
