On September 20th the Grant Gardens Committee met with Nancy Bond, head Resource Conservation Specialist at Portland Public Schools (PPS), Laura Neimi, director of Portland Community Gardens, our new AmeriCorps volunteer, and our new PPS site manager.
We discussed our plans to go forward with the Grant Learning Garden–we will break ground sometime next week!–and in doing so, made some minor adjustments to our original architectural plan. (Pictures of the new plan will be posted soon.)
We also talked about the future of the proposed Grant Community Garden. After reading the Gardens Committee’s most recent proposal, both Bond and Neimi appeared confident that the Community Garden will soon become a reality.
