Free flowering trees available!

To: All Wilkes East residents
From: Nick Kantor, Community Habitat Steward -City of Gresham

"I have 15 crabapples (8- Royal Raindrop, and 7- Red Jewel) I want to plant in Gresham. I would like to pick one neighborhood or street. It has to be a neighborhood with a 2.5 to 4 ft. planting strip near the street. The sooner the better. They are in containers and I would like to make the planting of the trees a volunteer event for sometime in May."

If you are interested, please contact Nick Kantor, Community Habitat Steward - City of Gresham, call 503-618-2740, or email nick.kantor@ci.gresham.or.us.

Before we get to the information below, I want to thank all of you on behalf of Gresham Parks and Recreation for the time you give to take care of the earth and to encourage others to do so.

Rejoice! Local farmers markets reopen


Farmers Market

Expect root veggies, assorted greens and plants starts now...

the next few months bring more produce and more markets!

(excepted from the Oregonian 'FOODday' Apr 1, 2008)

Although it brings showers for May flowers, April also brings farmers markets - and lots of them. Starting Thursday April 3, 2008, parking lots and parks around Portland and the surrounding communities will bustle wth tent poles, tarps and metal cash boxes as area farmers present their fare to resident cooks.

Local Area Farmers Markets

You'll find plenty of root vegitables, braising greens and lettuces, and of course plant starts for your own vegetable garden.
