Successful, accessible, bountiful garden demonstrations depend on a healthy flow of resources, both in the form of materials, time, and cold hard currency. Each of these Groundbreakers, through their thoughtful donations to our garden-based education programs, have become an essential part of Oregon Tilth's gardening community. We, in no small part, depend on the dedication and generosity of those around us in order to grow, educate, and continually enhance all of the Organic Education Center's hands-on offerings. We owe a huge, sustained THANK YOU to all of our Tilth Groundbreakers.
If you are a business or individual interested in developing a collaborative partnership in support of Tilth's teaching garden, please contact the OEC Program Manager.
