PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Help us welcome honey and mason bees to the Greeley Forest Garden! We will be building a fence around our newly installed hives to protect our friendly pollinators. Additionally, we will be focusing on building pollinator habitat including constructing an herb spiral in the center of our beautiful space. Greeley Forest Garden is a community-driven, permaculture site nestled in Portland’s Overlook neighborhood. Our vision and goals for the site include advocating for social justice through strengthening our food system and bringing people closer to a healthy and sustainable food source. The garden is a partnership between two local nonprofits, the Urban Farm Collective and Sisters of the Road Café. We host of multiple fruit and nut trees, perennial shrubs and bushes, and a mix of annual producing vegetables. Please bring water and gloves and come join us for the fun! It will “Bee” a blast!
