Field Trip to Vern Nelsons's Edible Gardens


Our July outing was an afternoon spent in the amazing gardens of Vern Nelson, Portland garden writer and photographer. He graciously hosted our chapter and showed us around his city garden filled with raised beds planted with edible plants, showed us his clay oven, made us wonderful smoked chicken and showed off his "girls", hens in a coop he keeps in the corner of the property.

Thank you for your hospitality, Vern!
