Why?

Rewild Portland has always focused on teaching resilience through skill building in natural crafts and wild foods. Throughout that time we have been incorporating the restoration of ecosystems and local food sovereignty into our programming. We need to be able to give back more, create more life, more wildness. Our nursery takes us to the next level, above and beyond just teaching crafts with natural materials–to growing those materials and restoring landscapes that formerly grew them.

Where? 

Our Nursery is located at Green Anchors, an eco-industrial park nestled alongside Cathedral Park and the Willamette River in the St. Johns neighborhood. A former shipyard and Superfund site, it now houses many small green businesses working to create a sustainable future. More than just our nursery, it is the home of the Rewild Portland library and we host many our or programs there.

Who?

Rewild Portland works with many stakeholders and community partners who benefit directly from our management of our nursery. Opportunities abound—from growing native and edible plants to give away at our monthly Free Skills Series, which is free and open to the public, to growing plants directly for organizations who share a vision with us, to offering plant sales to the people who live in the neighborhood. Among past and present partners we work to benefit are Portland Fruit Tree Project, Native American Youth and Family Center, Friends of the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge, Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, Green Anchors (for onsite restoration), and many others.

Volunteer at our Nursery

Volunteers help us to grow plants for a resilient future. Get outside, get your hands in the dirt, get moving. Gardening is a proven method for reducing anxiety and building community. Feel like you need to get outside and connect with others and with nature, but in a safer setting? Masks are required for work in the nursery, and we limit our group size to 8 people.
