Urban gardening on NE Going St. is a charmed farmer’s life. Our garden in the Cully neighborhood rests on the street side of a double lot–perfect for a small farmstead. Property boundaries here lack clear definition. Humans, ducks, and chickens comprise the population of residents and neighbors.

Going Rogue Garden is one tenth of an acre. A handful of dedicated volunteers work this beautiful space and productive mini farm. Last season we double dug new beds, laid mulch, and grew our vegetable crop from seed. Going Rogue was ripe with gorgeous greens, petite potatoes, emergent eggplant, piquant peppers, and a ton of tomatoes!

In June, we teamed up with neighboring Handmade Gardens to create a family farm day, including an edible tour and lady bug release with the kids from Portland Preschool in SE. Our site was also a stop on Pedalpalooza’s urban farm tour.

This 2016 season we will continue to offer educational opportunities and connect the farm to the community. We are excited to be new members of Cully Neighborhood Farmers!

Our other goals for the farm include a dedicated structure for on site composting using pallets.

If you would like to get involved, please contact Brendan Crowe.

Do you have resources or materials to donate? We would especially benefit from:

  • a timer and drip irrigation system
  • gloves, garden shears, digging knives
  • vegetable harvesting flats
  • speedling seed trays
