Join the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council and Portland Parks & Recreation to install hundreds of native, pollinator-friendly plants and cut the ribbon on the new natural landscape with our guest of honor and park namesake, Dick Hazeltine. We will also be planting a tree to honor Mr. Hazeltine’s late wife, Opal Hazeltine, who was instrumental in the development of the original park. (There will be a second event to finish spring planting on March 23rd.)

Learn how to transform grapevines and evergreen cuttings into beautiful and festive wreaths for your door while supporting the Learning Gardens Laboratory (LGL). Learning Gardens Laboratory volunteers will teach you skills and share design tips to guide you through the wreath making process. No experience necessary!
Bring your creativity, gloves and pruners (if you have them) and take-away your very own unique wreath this year and expertise to recreate a wreath next year, all while supporting our educational farm and garden.
Complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries will be provided.
All of the proceeds from this workshop will go directly to the Learning Gardens Laboratory’s educational programs. Our mission is to cultivate a sustainable future through garden-based education.
