Is there Support for a Community Orchard-Garden in Brooklyn?
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The Brooklyn Action Corps (BAC) will hold a meeting on Monday, March 10 to gauge public support for a fruit orchard and raised bed community garden.
The proposed site for the ‘Orchard-Garden’ is a triangular lot at SE Pershing and 16th Ave. which is currently being used as a construction staging area for the new Milwaukie to Portland light rail line.
The property belongs to TriMet, and has been offered to the community for this purpose once the light rail is up and running in 2015. Both the orchard and garden would be open to gardeners throughout the Portland-Metro area.
The meeting on March 10 will take place at Meals on Wheels/ Sacred Heart Villa, 3925 SE Milwaukie Ave., from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
