Wildwood View Garden

Garden Manager: Angela D. Goldsmith

Land/ Water Sharer: Angela D Goldsmith

Work Party: Sundays 10am

Welcome to Wildwood View Garden – a homestead on the peninsula. This is our second season (2016) out here on the peninsula! The fruit trees and grapes are doing well, as well as the Arctic Kiwis! We hope to start getting harvests of some substance by 2018 season!

Last fall we added a greenhouse, which is awesome, especially because we were assigned nightshades and legumes for the season. It is bursting with beans, tomatoes, peppers and more. The peas are in the ground, as well as other random and wonderful goodies.

We have also just added a second hive, this time a Warre. We hope to be able to provide a little honey in our August market!

Welcome to Shana Houlton, new permaculture apprentice!

Urban gardening on NE Going St. is a charmed farmer’s life. Our garden in the Cully neighborhood rests on the street side of a double lot–perfect for a small farmstead. Property boundaries here lack clear definition. Humans, ducks, and chickens comprise the population of residents and neighbors.

Going Rogue Garden is one tenth of an acre. A handful of dedicated volunteers work this beautiful space and productive mini farm. Last season we double dug new beds, laid mulch, and grew our vegetable crop from seed. Going Rogue was ripe with gorgeous greens, petite potatoes, emergent eggplant, piquant peppers, and a ton of tomatoes!

In June, we teamed up with neighboring Handmade Gardens to create a family farm day, including an edible tour and lady bug release with the kids from Portland Preschool in SE. Our site was also a stop on Pedalpalooza’s urban farm tour.

This 2016 season we will continue to offer educational opportunities and connect the farm to the community. We are excited to be new members of Cully Neighborhood Farmers!

Our other goals for the farm include a dedicated structure for on site composting using pallets.

If you would like to get involved, please contact Brendan Crowe.

Do you have resources or materials to donate? We would especially benefit from:

  • a timer and drip irrigation system
  • gloves, garden shears, digging knives
  • vegetable harvesting flats
  • speedling seed trays

This is the fifth year that Common Bond has been participating in the Urban Farm Collective. Before that it was a community garden associated with St. Andrew’s Church for 50 years! The soil is beautiful!

The garden is equipped with:

  • Perennial fruits and flowers: raspberries, grapes, apple trees, rhubarb, dahlia, lavendar
  • A tool shed and a greenhouse
  • Compost Bins
  • Herbs; chives, sage, rosemary, rue, mint, lemon balm
  • And many bed feet dedicated to our annual Collective crop

In 2015, we grew tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, lettuce, cilantro, peas, bush beans, pole beans, broccoli, kale, arugula, mustard greens, radish and turnips. We focused our energy on clearing out the grass and creating a path system, in addition to amending the soil and cleaning up the perimeter of the garden.

In the 2016 season, we are grew snap peas, bulb onions, leeks, garlic, tomatoes, radish, chard, beets, parsley, cilantro, carrots, cucumbers, summer squash and winter squash, as well as sunflowers and calendula. This season, we’ve continued to work on controlling the grass, we brought in burlap and woodchips and are working on restructuring the beds and paths to be more efficient for working and growing.
