Our Mission: To promote gardening at a community level, to educate, create and encourage community involvement for the betterment of the community, while providing members with the joys of gardening organically.
OSU Extension Master Gardeners have provided Greene Acres with a Garden Journal containing a monthly to-do list. Click here to see what’s on the list for each month of the 2018 season.
Our Next Community Work Day is Saturday, August 4, 2018, 8-11am. Your participation is GREATLY appreciated!
Don’t forget about our VERY FULL rain barrel! Don’t drink or wash hands with it but it’s fine to water your plot!!
All gardens are filled at this time, but contact us to be added to the waiting list should one become available!

How many pounds do you think you’ll be able to contribute from your plot?
Food for thought: You could grow one plant in your plot for donation purposes only!
In 2017 we donated 460 lbs of produce from our garden! Thank you for your kind donations to the local food bank!
Here are the latest notes from our master gardener mentor!
- Please submit any suggestions for future quarterly meeting educational topics here.
- Important RAIN BARREL notice: Do NOT drink this water or wash your hands with it! It is NON-POTABLE! It may contain harmful bacteria that could be hazardous to your health! Use the fresh water from the hoses for these purposes.
