Join us at either the PSU Orchard or the Smith garden for a service event to promote sustainability and food security on the PSU campus! We will weed and prepare our garden boxes, plant seeds, and do some harvesting that will be donated to our PSU Food Pantry. 

Find a shift that works for you and join us for a garden work party!

Please remember to:
  • wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty
  • bring a water bottle to stay hydrated
  • wear closed-toed shoes for safety
We will provide tools and gloves.

Note: When we're working in the Smith Gardens, most areas are wheelchair accessible.

PSU's Student Sustainability Center empowers all students to be keepers of an interdependent, healthy, regenerative world. Our mission is to be an accessible hub that integrates sustainability with the student experience through transformational learning opportunities.

This project is open to all Portland State University students and hosted in partnership with the Student Community Engagement Center's #serveyourcityserveyourcampus program.
