GardenNet is a group launched by Central Northeast Neighbors (CNN) two years ago with a group of Portland State students. GardenNet connects neighbors with resources and opportunties to buy garden fresh food, grow your own, or anything in between.

With our Helensview community garden proposal filed for grant money — with GardenNet’s generous assistance — this is a good time for Sumner neighborhood residents to check out their monthly meeting. On Feb 15, GardenNet hosts a roundtable on the upcoming draft update to the city’s Urban Food Zoning Code. Details are below.

GardenNet Roundtable Event: Urban Food Zoning Code Update

In just a few weeks a draft of changes to the City’s zoning code that will affect the way that food can be grown and distributed in our neighborhoods will be released! The proposal supports activities such as community gardens, farmers markets and food buying clubs.
