Production Garden

Supporting Food Security

The Neighborhood House Production Garden is located right next to the Free Food Market in Multnomah Village. Each year, volunteers grow around 1,500 pounds of fresh, nutritious vegetables that are harvested and then distributed from the Market to neighbors who need food. This is an entirely volunteer-run program.

Interested in volunteering? Fill out an application here.

We’re looking for:

  1. People interested in on-site garden work (weeding, preparing beds, planting, harvesting, mowing, and trimming)
  2. Sources for plant starts
  3. Scattered Garden participants (read on for more information)

Interested in helping out? Email us!.

Scattered Garden Program

“Use what you need, give us the rest”

You can grow fresh produce in your own garden and give the surplus to the Neighborhood House Free Food Market through the Scattered Garden Program. 

The program has two parts:

  1. We provide home gardeners and community gardens with vegetable plant starts.
  2. Bring any extra produce to the Market (more zucchini than you can use? We can help). 

We’re looking for people who:

  1. Have room in their garden to grow produce to contribute to the Market
  2. Have vegetable plant starts we can use for the program
  3. Know of other homes and community gardens who might be interested in participating in this program

Interested in helping out? Email us! for updates on picking up starts. Be sure to mention Scattered Garden when you bring your produce to the Market!
