NE Homegoods Library is Ready to Lend

At long last, the NE Homegoods Library is ready to lend! Please visit NE Homegoods Library page for more information about the library. We will have an on-line reservations system up as soon as we can, but until that happens you can reserve items via e-mail (see below).

We are also excited to be supporting the wonderful work that the Portland Fruit Tree Project does with food preservation workshops by offering coupons to access the library for Portland Fruit Tree Project class participants. The Portland Fruit Tree Project offers classes, gatherings, and support for growing trees, harvesting, and preserving foods. Their mission is to increase equitable access to healthy food and strengthen communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown food resources.

Reserving and picking up equipment:
For the time being, we ask that you send an e-mail to stating which item(s) you would like to reserve and which days you will need them (you may check items out for one week). We will send to you the guidelines and paperwork (via reply e-mail). Pick-up and return days/times are currently on Wed mornings between 9am-12pm and Sundays by appointment.

Thank you to our sponsor City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability!
