Growing Gardens is deeply grateful for the support it receives on a daily basis.
Without the generosity of donors, foundations, grantors, community organizations, local and state government, chefs, restaurants, wineries, local businesses, and our beloved volunteers we would not be able to bring the joys of growing fresh food to so many in Portland.
