GardenNet was initiated to help address the need for healthful, affordable, and accessible food. We are creating a model that promotes sustainable food access for all CNN neighbors by identifying and connecting available resources in a specific geographic area. Proximity to resources is the key to our success!
What is GardenNet?
GardenNet is a network of over 40 community groups and neighbors who share a commitment to promoting access to healthful and affordable food through urban agriculture and community gardens in Central Northeast Portland. One of the main objectives is to build awareness of community gardens, food growing and distribution opportunities in CNN neighborhoods. Today GardenNet promotes local community garden collaboration, learning, and resource sharing.

Community Garden Tour
GardenNet hosts a yearly tour of community gardens, yardsharing, multi-family, urban farm and school garden sites in the CNN area. For more informationplease contact Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first CNN community garden tour began at the

Prescott and included stops such as a proposed neighborhood garden in Cully, and a yard sharing site of the Urban Farm Collective. The final talk was given at the Hacienda CDC Los Jardines community garden. About 20 Community members biked and traveled in shared transportation to hear speakers at the various sites.
