Nearly 40 gardeners turned out to harvest the thin cracked asphalt at Vermont Hills Church in order to expand the existing 10,000 square foot garden, adding 16 half plots. This project was made possible by a partnership between the Vermont Hills Methodist Church, Depave, the Hayhurst Neighborhood Association, the West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, City of Portland BES and Portland Parks & Recreation Community Gardens Program, Friends of Portland Community Gardens, as well as area neighbors.
