COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the development and operations of The Oregon Garden. Oregon Garden Foundation was forced to cancel all fundraising events and public events in order to comply with the State of Oregon's order. In an effort to protect the health and safety of our community, The Oregon Garden was closed during a seven-week period, historically our busiest time of year.
This closure left the Garden with an unprecedented revenue loss and many lay-offs of critical maintenance and horticulture staff. Mother nature continued to challenge us this year, with summer drought stress and another September garden closure during the Beachie Creek Fire's evacuation. (Luckily the fire remained 8 miles away from the Garden.)
Your donations will make it possible to hire staff and resume member programming in 2021.
Funds donated to the relief effort will be used where the need is greatest with the goal to recoup the lost revenue from admissions and events.
Donations are tax-deductible.
