Come join us in continuing the creation of a beautiful community space and active learning lab that will also be a food producing garden.

PCC Newberg Center’s Learning Garden is hosting the first cob work party of the season on Saturday, April 1st from 9am to 1pm. ┬áLearn what cob natural building is all about and have some fun working with clay, straw, and sand. We are hoping to have as many people as possible in order to make this an effective event and get some more of the cob structure finished, so invite your friends and family!

This is a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty, and community members to get involved, learn about what’s going on in the PCC Newberg Learning Garden, build community, exchange knowledge, and develop hands-on experience in natural cob building. It’s also a great opportunity to build resumes, portfolios, and volunteer hours.

The details: Saturday, April 1st from 9am to 1pm in the PCC Newberg Center Learning Garden located on the corner of Brutscher St and E Fernwood Rd. There will be refreshments and kids are welcome. Please bring a water bottle, wear clothes that can get a little dirty, boots or shoes that can get muddy, and a rain jacket is great too.

If you would like to confirm for April 1st or you have questions about future events email moonrose.doherty@pcc.edu or call 971-722-8610.
