Rain Gardens and Propagation Workparty

  • 2735 Southeast 30th Avenue Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Join City Repair at a long time #placemaking and Village Building Convergence - Portland site in inner SE for an ecological landscaping workparty.

We'll start with a tour of permaculture and natural building systems on site. We will proceed with helping winterize the gardens thru weeding, pruning, seed casting, and and plantings. From the pruning we will propagate starts for the City Repair nursery that supports dozens of community sites and we give out hundreds of plants annually.

No experience required, we will have permaculture teachers on site. Rain-or-shine, dress for the weather! Tea, coffee, and a simple lunch meal provided. Tools provided but feel free to bring your favorite, most trusty pruners!

If you have any cuttings starts of natives or common herbs (rosemary, oregano, chive, etc) feel free to bring to share! If you cannot attend but want to support please donate here: Contact Kirk for more info at
