Green Thumb Community Orchard
Owned by Portland Parks and Recreation, and co-operatively managed by Portland Community Gardens and the Portland Fruit Tree Project, the Green Thumb Orchard is a historic orchard that hosts a great deal of activities. PFTP's tree care team maintains the orchard's trees, and the fruit is harvested through our harvesting programs. The Green Thumb Orchard is adjacent to Brentwood Community Garden on SE 57th Avenue and Cooper Street, and lies within the same site as the Learning Gardens Laboratory.
