The Friends of Portland Community Gardens is seeking new Board Members. The all-volunteer board steers the work of the organization, founded in 1986. 

Their mission is to support and expand community gardening opportunities in the city and to build community around gardening. 

The Friends work closely with the City of Portland Community Garden program and on its Produce for People Program, where community gardens donate produce to local food shelters.

They provide funds, tools and materials for the gardens and advocate for the Community Garden Program.

Those interested in becoming a Board member, wanting to learn more about the organization or want to tour a community garden should contact allen_field@yahoo.com or info@portlandcommunitygardens.org.
