Depave owes much of the success in proving our unique model of urban transformation through community empowerment to the projects implemented at schools within the Portland Public School district — including: Creative Science, Vestal Elementary, Capitol Hill Elementary, James John Elementary, Chief Joseph Elementary, Hayhurst Elementary, Arleta K-8, Lewis Elementary, and others.
This program has provided gardening opportunities for the physical and social benefit of the people and neighborhoods of Portland since 1975. There are 35 community gardens located throughout the city, developed and operated by volunteers and PP&R staff, offering a variety of activities. Depave works with PP&R on an ongoing basis to develop appropriate sites such as Vestal Community Garden and Vermont Hills Community Garden.
A volunteer nonprofit organization working primarily with Portland Parks and Recreation, is dedicated to the improvement, advocacy and expansion of local community gardening through fundraising, securing land, and organizing educational activities and events. This group has been instrumental in gathering local support for Depave projects.
