Season Kick Off Work Party + Volunteer Orientation

  • Side Yard Annex 5940 Northeast 45th Avenue Portland, OR, 97218 United States (map)

Sunday April 29 (Will move to Sunday May 6 if weather is terrible)

Join us for the first big work party of the season! Help us prep the farm for a bountiful season! We will weed, plant, build, beautify and more! There will be a project that everyone can access. No farming experience necessary.

This will also be a volunteer orientation for any new or existing volunteers to get a run down of who Public Annex is and what we do on the farm. We will give a tour, meet the core farm volunteers, go over the Community Agreements and hear about all of the volunteer opportunities available.

Bring your own garden gloves and favorite hand tool or shovel if you have them. Snacks and refreshments provided!


Location and Parking Info:
The Side Yard Annex is on the corner of NE 45th St and Simpson Ave. 0.4 mile walk off of the 72 and 75 bus line. Street parking available. We suggest that Lifts and other vehicles enter NE 45th St from Ainsworth St. The road leading to the farm from NE Simpson is very uneven and can be difficult to traverse.

Located down the street from our sponsor - The Side Yard Farm + Kitchen.

Open to anyone with a passion for art and farming! Our programming focuses on inclusivity of adults with developmental disabilities, but we are working towards a culture where people all along the disability spectrum can work, create and experience life together!

We are working hard to make the Side Yard Annex accessible to people of all abilities, however it is still a work in progress! Contact us with accessibility questions/concerns or suggestions:

Farm Work Parties are contingent on the weather. Check social media or contact us for updates:
