Portland Edible Gardens goes further than most landscaping firms:

  • Education - They offer classes and one-on-one mentorship for clients and students on how to become a skilled vegetable gardener. Clients receive a detailed handbook that covers practices and horticultural information for their garden.
  • Raised beds will soon be made with juniper, an excellent pest and rot-resistant wood like cedar, but also an invasive tree. Using juniper will help to restore local natural forests by providing financial gain for removing juniper trees.
  • Soils are lab tested before bringing them to the client’s garden to guide amendment to the proper balance of nutrients, micronutrients, and soil organic matter.
