Northwest Crossing Community Garden

2017 Information

About the Gardens:

  • NWX Community Garden is located on Discovery Park Drive, near the dog park in the NWX neighborhood of Bend.
  • The Garden is on property owned by West Bend Property Co, and is managed by OSU Master Gardener Volunteers.
  • Cost of a raised bed (4' x 12') is $30 ($25 for seniors age 65+)
  • Each bed has microsprayers. The time they come on and the length of time they run is controlled automatically and is adjusted continually throughout the season to compensate for weather.
  • All beds are assigned to an OSU Master Gardener Volunteer who acts as a mentor.

About Getting A Garden Plot at Northwest Crossing:

  • Reservations for a raised garden bed is a Lottery System.  To participate in the lottery, please email tinaburnside@bendcable or by April 15th and include your phone number.  We will do a blind draw for the available beds on April 15th and notify you via email or phone with your bed number. 

  • Returning gardeners in good standing have been contacted to rent their same bed for this season and will not participate in the lottery.

  • Opening Day is Saturday, April 29, 2017 beginning at 9:30am. This is required of all gardeners. After completing a 1/2 hr. of general work (weeding and preparation for the upcoming season), gardeners can register for a bed. Following registration, there will be informational presentation to get gardeners started.
  • Opening Day takes place in the garden. Please come ready to work. Dress for the weather. We suggest that you bring gloves and tools (shovel, trowel, rake, etc).
