About The Garden

If you want to learn more about natural building or sustainable gardening, the Learning Garden offers an inclusive and supportive place to gain new skills and friends. 

Come to one or all of our Cob Natural Building workshops with Learning Garden Coordinator Moonrose Doherty and Corrie Larson, Learning Garden Assistant.  The cob shed construction, which has been a community and volunteer based project, with the help of PCC instructor and natural builder Bernhard Masterson. Check the calendar for dates and times.

For more information contact Moonrose Doherty, PCC Newberg Center Learning Garden Coordinator at moonrose.doherty@pcc.edu 971-722-8610 

We want to teach you about growing food, non-toxic weed management, food forests, pollinators, and permaculture. Schedule a time with us to learn about natural cultivation, how to stick to chemical-free plant care, pollinator-friendly practices, and permaculture. We look forward to meeting you.

If you would like to be involved in the following special projects: pollinator tracking, planting the herb spiral, adopting a raised garden bed, or planting native plant species in the garden, please contact Moonrose Doherty.

Progress on the shed continues! We've come so far and we are looking forward to sharing this skill-building knowledge in 2018. Check out the photo at left, when we first started! We have now gotten to the point where we'll be installing windows and the door. Help us get to the point where we can put the roof on! Join us -  We'd love to see you at one of the free workshops. Get to know each other, build community, build your resume, and learn about cob.
See our Pictures section for more!
