Our 3rd Annual
Neighborhood Garden Tour
was a great success!
Thank you to all who participated in our 3rd annual garden tour last weekend. 600 visitors braved the ever-changing Oregon weather to explore the beautiful gardens in the Fairmount Hill Neighborhood. We are grateful to our 12 welcoming garden hosts, 19 generous sponsors, and 90 volunteers who all made this year's tour a huge success!

In honor of Historic Preservation Month:
Can you help us preserve the
Deepwood Scroll Garden?
We are pleased to announce that Lord & Schryver Conservancy has been awarded a $1,200 grant from The National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The funds will be used to hire a preservation architect to analyze and propose corrective treatment of key historical features within Deepwood’s Scroll Garden.

This is a 50/50 matching grant, so we must raise the remaining $1,200 required to complete the $2,400 project. Project details here.

Help us to preserve the historic gardens at Deepwood. Any amount is appreciated.
