Building Food Gardens with friends at Growing Gardens

Knowing where our food comes from is important to us – which is why we teamed up with Growing Gardens this month for our Community Tap program. In addition to sending them 1% of all April pint sale proceeds from our Powell brew pub, we also put in a few volunteer work hours and helped build a garden in a Portland resident’s backyard.

We built two raised planter beds and filled the beds with soil. Over the next three years the resident will receive gardening mentorship from Growing Gardens and will grow their own food. Here are a handful of photos from the Spring Dig-In work day. We were amazed at how quickly the garden came together and we are glad that we could take part in such a rewarding process. Cheers to a successful food garden!
