Help Us Purchase a Greenhouse!
Help Us Reach Our Goal
For many years Rewild Portland has focused on teaching resilience through skill building in natural crafts and wild foods. In the last two years 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. This greenhouse will take us to the next level. We can’t make this dream come true without assistance from our growing community of supporters like you.
Green Anchors is 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 businesses working to create a sustainable future, and is the new home of the Rewild Portland library. Among the facilities at Green Anchors is a greenhouse. With the former owner moving out, we are presented with this huge opportunity.
Rewild Portland works with many stakeholders and community partners who will benefit directly from our management of this greenhouse. 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 aim 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. Sign up today:
