  • Garden School #5:  Contaminated Soil - Testing and Gardening Options

    Brand new to growing food?  Already gardening but want to improve your techniques?  Have lots of experience and willing to share?  Join us!

    New and experienced gardeners are invited to join The Resilience Hub for its first season of "Garden School" modules in Portland.  Each of the 12 modules will focus on a specific gardening topic in easily accessible and "digestible" chunks.  Together we willcreate a shared space for newer, intermediate as well as experienced gardeners to learn and share.  Sessions happen every two weeks starting in March; attend one, some or all!

    Some modules will be facilitated by experienced Resilience Hub folks, while others will feature a guest lecturer/facilitator.  This series is grounded in organic methods and the use of good permaculture design skills.


    All sessions will convene at 6:30 pm so that participants can share potluck food (bring a dish/beverage to share and your own potluck kit consisting of bowl/utensils/cup/napkin).  Main topic will commence at 7:00 pm and run for 60-90 minutes depending on discussion time.  Handouts will be provided.

    Space is limited to ensure a quality learning experience!

    Garden School #5:  Contaminated Soil - Testing and Gardening Options

    Module #5 will address the difficult topic of contaminated soils (much of Portland, unfortunately!) due to historic uses, lead paint and a history of leaded fuel emissions.  How do you know if you have contamination?  And then what do you do about it?  There are options.

    We will be joined by member Susan Chase who has some specific knowledge and experience with this topic!
