The Learning Gardens Lab is a non-profit, educational facility for Portland Public Schools and Portland State University in partnership with the City of Portland.
The vegetables grown at the site are grown by students learning organic gardening methods. One of the goals at LGL is to create hands-on multicultural, interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and multi-sensory experiences that promote earth-friendly local food production and improve student learning.
You can find LGL produce at the Lents International Farmer's Market in Portland, OR. The market is located at the corner of SE 94th Ave and SE Foster. Open from June 16 - October 15 this summer of 2008.
The Learning Gardens Laboratory (LGLab) is a roughly 11-acre parcel of public land located in SE Portland, Oregon that is part community garden, part garden-based education, and more. The garden incorporates "permaculture" or permanent agriculture which is a more earth-friendly and sustainable means of growing food.
The LGLab is primarily geared to serve the students and families of the multicultural and lower income SE Portland neighborhoods that the garden calls home. LGLab's primary Portland Public Schools partner is Lane Middle School which is just down the street from the learning garden. The garden aims to provide a hands-on and enriching learning environment for students and volunteers alike.
