Voices From Our Community Gardens

The land along the Willamette River has undergone many drastic changes over the past 200 years, a silent witness to environmental, social and cultural decisions being made on top. The soil holds buried stories, some deep and others just now being layered upon the surface. In seeking a positive way to study agricultural land use in Eugene the story of the Community Gardens along the river are particularly compelling. What triggered their development? Who do they serve and what are their stories?

Listen to Sara, Eduardo and Mamfiel tell you about their experiences! (5:01 minutes)

Read their stories and history in "Growing a Garden of Access, Opportunity and Healing: the Voices of Eugene's Community Gardens" Eleanor Gordon, ELP Winter 2006.
