Hello from Newport, Oregon!
Every July I go to a conference in Seattle, Washington. I fly in a few days early to Portland, Oregon and drive down to my nieces house in Salem. I kidnap her and take her to the Oregon Coast. In prior year we go for one night. This is the first year in a few years when she was neither nursing or pregnant so we decided to take TWO NIGHTS. What a luxury to be able to sit around, drink copious amounts of Oregon wine, and just do whatever the heck we decide to do.
One of the things we decided to do was to visit the Newport, Oregon Community garden.
The Newport Community Garden is located at Frank Wade Park in Newport. It seems to be administered by the City of Newport. The nice lady we spoke to while poking around said that there is a person in charge of the community garden. This position is a volunteer position. The garden plots are without charge. There is a waitlist for the plots.
It’s just a lovely area. It’s so interesting to me what grows in different parts of the country that are different than what grows easily in Texas. Here is an overview of what we saw:
