The Wish List
Material donation possibilities for the garden
In it's simplest form, gardening requires little more than good soil, viable seed, clean water, and some healthy effort. For the Organic Education Center, and Oregon Tilth's teaching garden, these essential elements provide a solid foundation for an array of garden-based educational offerings. Needless to say, it gets more complex from there. The constant development and delivery of engaging, hands-on curriculum - as well as the ongoing maintenance and implementation of intention, seasonal, organic growing demonstrations - requires a vibrant influx of resources.
While your monetary donation is equally helpful (and appreciated), the garden-nerds here at the Organic Education Center are always excited to receive tangible treasure such as seeds, mulch, cold-frames, tools, building materials, etc. Please explore the following wish list of items - each a deeply welcome and important addition to Tilth's role as an organic gardening resource. As a public space, Tilth's garden is your garden - these generous donations help to enhance this living classroom for a wide community of gardeners, educators, and volunteers alike.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible material contribution, or if you have any questions about donations, please contact our Garden Coordinator. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration!
