The Fall Harvest Festival at the Learning Gardens Laboratory (LGL) is an opportunity for Lane Middle School students, families, and the local neighborhood to celebrate a seasonal abundance of locally-grown food, and 10 years of productive partnerships at LGL. Everyone is welcome and admission is FREE! The Harvest Festival will include games, garden related activities, garden tours, food, a raffle, a cider press, and special guests from PSU, the city of Portland, and Portland Public Schools. The Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood farm stand will also be open at LGL during the festival, where organic produce grown on site will be available for the community.
The Learning Garden Laboratory is a garden education program that is located at the 12 acre Green Thumb site in Southeast Portland in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood. The mission of the Learning Gardens Lab is to support academic achievement, leadership development, and a local sustainable food system by providing garden-based education for public school students and their families, university students, and community members. Established in 2005, LGL exists as a unique partnership between Portland State University, Portland Public Schools, The City of Portland’s Parks and Recreation, and Oregon State University Extension Service. We aim to cultivate a sustainable future through garden-based education.
