The Milwaukie Center holds several fantastic events throughout the year. Below are the details of what is coming up in the next few months:


Community Garden Sign-Ups

Time to Think About Planting a Garden

Register Now!

$15 per raised bed; $20 per in-ground bed

Milwaukie Center, in partnership with Clackamas County Master Gardeners, has a wonderful community garden available for rent during the growing season. The garden boasts both raised beds and in-ground plots. First priority on plot rentals goes to prior year renters who are in good standing with the program, older adults (55+) and people with disabilities in North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District.

Proceeds help pay for maintenance and costs of caring for the garden. Due to the high demand for the garden plots, the limit is one per person. Applications are available at the Milwaukie Center Information Desk. For more information, call Lisa Kasubuchi at 503-653-8100.

Without our volunteers, many in the North Clackamas community would go without a healthy fresh daily meal. Others would go long periods of time without the opportunity to simply leave their home.The Milwaukie Center offers many different opportunities for you to share your skills. We want to make sure you find the position that fulfills your desire to make a difference in your community. Questions: Call Judith Kallio, Volunteer Coordinator, 503-653-8100, 1-3 pm, Mon-Fri.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
