Congregations urged to plant community gardens

An interfaith coalition is sponsoring a workshop to help congregations plant community gardens on their spare land.

The Community Garden Workshop for Congregations and Communities takes place Monday, Nov. 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Neighborhoods United Community Center, 19255 E. Burnside, near the Rockwood/188th Avenue MAX station.

It’s sponsored by the Interfaith Food and Farms Partnership, a program of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon.

Speakers include Leslie Pohl-Kosbau of Shared Gardens, who also is the former director of Portland Community Gardens. There also will be representatives of community gardens and agencies that provide assistance.
