Growing Gardens helps people grow their own food in Portland, Oregon by building organic Home Gardens in urban backyards and schools. Our Youth Grow school garden clubs create future veggie eaters and cultivators. Our Learn & Grow classes cover cooking, preserving & more.

Beautiful and functional planters made from Juniper will last up to 50 years and sales support our home and school garden programs! Purchase a garden box kit or let us build one for you and donate to Growing Gardens! Your plants and our gardeners will love you.600_0707-Edit

Growing Gardens has been selected by Besaw’s Restaurant to receive a portion of their July sales to our programs. You probably know Besaw’s as a great place for breakfast, but did you know they also have wonderful dinners? Chef Michael Uhnak uses fresh produce grown in their Besaw's gardengarden, and sources everything else from local farmers and purveyors. You might say dinner at Besaw’s is a totally different pace. Right now they are serving Copper River King Salmon, Tails & Trotters Pork Loin and Hanger Steak. You can enjoy a great dinner and support Growing Gardens at the same time! They’re located at 2301 NW Savier Street in Portland.Besaws
