Production Garden

Supporting Food Security

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

Interested in volunteering? Fill out an application here.

We’re looking for:

  1. People interested in volunteering in the garden (weeding, preparing beds, planting, harvesting, mowing, and trimming)
  2. Sources for plant starts
  3. People interested in working on the flower and herb gardens on the property

Interested in helping out? Email Dan.

Scattered Garden Program

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

The program has two parts:

  1. Provide homes and community gardens with healthy, young vegetable plant starts to supplement these gardens. (Our motto is “Use what you need, give the Free Food Market the rest”); and
  2. Facilitate the delivery of the grown produce to the Market. 

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 Dan. for updates on picking up starts. Let Dan know when you deliver your Scattered Garden produce, too!
