Here's a great volunteer opportunity for the flower gardener in you!
Help rebuild the Pollinator Garden at Vance Park while you learn the importance of bees and how they benefit everyone. Volunteer as little or as much time as you like. Details below:


Hello, fellow Gresham residents -
My name is Celeste, and I'll be working with the City of Gresham to restore and enhance the Pollinator Peace Garden at Vance Park. Beginning in April, I will also be giving scheduled talks there on native bees to interested members of the community. We'll be posting the dates and times for these talks in the coming weeks. We hope to see many of you in the Pollinator Peace Garden during the bee season!
We are in the planning stages for the garden right now, and have two upcoming work parties at Vance Park to prepare the site and to plant lots of pollinator-friendly flowers. The first work day is scheduled for February 25th and the second for March 18th, both events occurring from 10 to 2. We are seeking volunteers from the Gresham community to help us in the gardens on these dates. Just show up with some garden gloves, water bottle and a willing spirit!
So I'm looking forward to meeting and working with all of you to make the Pollinator Peace Garden a great resource for the Gresham Community. We could use lots of able-bodied gardening enthusiasts at the gardens on February 25th, so please join us for however much time you can spare between 10:00 and 2:00. Bee there or bee square!
Refreshments and tools will be provided on both work days - Feb. 25th and March 18th. Come join us, Rain or Shine: 1400 SE 182nd Ave, Gresham. The garden is the fenced area on the north western portion of the park off of 182nd.
