Portland Community College Rock Creek Learning Garden
The Rock Creek Learning Garden promotes interdisciplinary academic achievement, leadership development and sustainable food systems. The garden provides experiential education and life-long learning opportunities for PCC students, faculty, staff and community members.
The Learning Garden grows vegetables, flowers, and fruit on 3.6 acres and is managed by Nora Lindsey. Within this space, there are 35 raised beds for farm stand and cafeteria production, 16 community beds, and ~1 acre in row cropping. The garden features an orchard, beehives, compost bins, an earthen oven, worm nursery, and a sustainable designed cob tool shed. Food harvested from the garden is sold at our weekly farm stand and donations are also made to the Rock Creek cafeteria and Women's Resource Center Canteen. Volunteers are encouraged to take food home through the volunteer rewards program. Check out our volunteer page for more information on how to get involved.
