Mid August in the Garden

Tomatoes are coming on strong now! Beans, cucumbers, and squash need to be picked nearly daily. And plans for our fall and winter gardens are being made. This week we will donate over 100 pounds of garden veggies to Esther's Pantry.

Thanks to The Peck for visiting our garden and writing this nice story about our community effort:  Community gardens grow more than vegetables, fruits.

Technically spring is still a little ways off, but it sure feels like it is here in the garden. We are busy harvesting lettuce, kale, carrots, radishes, herbs and more. We are planting seeds (its time to plant peas!) and pulling weeds.


All of the plots at the Campbell Community Garden are currently rented for the 2016 season. however if you want to garden with us, please fill out the registration form (link found on the "Rent a Garden" page) you will get onto our waiting list for the next open garden plot.

The harvest sharing program is an essential part of the Campbell Community Garden; in 3 plots food is grown to be donated to Esther’s Pantry - just a few miles away from the garden. Gardeners who find themselves with more to harvest than they can eat add to the donations. In 2015 we donated 1,411 pounds of produce. We have donated 9 ½ pounds this month and hope to exceed last years total by the end of the year.

If you want to join our great gardening community rent a plot! We have several spaces open for Milwaukie residents to rent, just $30 a year for a small plot or $40 a year for a medium plot (large plots are all rented). 
  • New to gardening? Don’t worry we have several experienced gardeners who will help you out.
  • Don’t have tools? No problem. Thanks to generous donors we have tools to use and free seeds too!
  • Don’t like vegetables? Grow flowers! You may find yourself eating more veggies and salads when you taste what is truly fresh J

Winter is a great time to get started, you have time to plan before spring really hits us, and it is nearly time to plant peas and other cool weather crops. We garden year round!
