El Programa de los Huertos

¿Cómo pedir un lote?

Community Gardens: By providing access to community garden plots, Huerto de la Familia provides families with personal plots of land to grow healthy, nutritious and culturally appropriate food for their families.  Families also have the opportunity to use the space to express their culture and build community with each other.

In partnership with many local organizations and farms, we provide garden members with organic seeds, fertilizer, tools, and gardening materials.

We subsidize garden plots at seven locations throughout Eugene and Springfield:

  • Churchill Community Garden in partnership with 4J School District
  • Gamebird Community Garden in partnership with Willamalane Park and Recreation District
  • Bethel Community Garden in partnership with Bethel School District and Kalapuya High School
  • Skinner City Farm in partnership with the City of Eugene
  • Santa Clara Community Garden at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church
  • Poppen Community Garden at Wesley United Methodist Church
  • Community Garden at Catholic Community Services of Springfield

Garden Education: Many of our garden members have generations of experience growing food for their families and communities.  We provide a number of education opportunities in order to teach about organic practices and the unique agricultural climate of the Pacific Northwest.

  • “Siembra la Cena” or Seed to Supper: a joint program developed by Oregon Food Bank and OSU Extension to teach community members how to grow food as a budget-friendly and healthy way to build self-sufficiency
  • Hands-on workshops: topics vary depending on season and demand
  • Día del Agricultor Latino: an annual conference hosted in collaboration with partner organizations Adelante Mujeres, Next Door Inc, and Our Table Cooperative.
