Even native plants need watering to thrive during their first couple summers, particularly when it's as hot and dry as the forecast is here in Portland. Give your plants some water -- they'll thank you!

First time Depaver Phil just moved here from Santa Barbara, where he was working with a technical/engineering program that gets kids involved and interested in the STEM fields. Now he's studying engineering at PSU and is looking into involving himself more in the community. "I came out having no idea what to expect and ended up being completely immersed in the collective spirit of #Depave and making a positive impact on the environment!" #volunteering #nonprofit #greytogreen #volunteers #depavepdx
Magali was sifting through the crumble at the Russellville Grange, lending a hand at transforming the parking lot. A U of O grad who recently moved back to Oregon with her husband and daughter, Magali thought Depave would be a perfect opportunity for her family to connect to the community and meet new people. "Plus we get to smash asphalt!" She and the fam had an awesome time at their first depaving. #depave #volunteers #portlandoregon #greeningthecity #nonprofit #depavepdx
Monica was thrilled to help out at her first ever depave this weekend. "People complain about national politics, but doing things like this really make a difference. I say, 'Get out here! This is where it's at.' I love this!" Thanks for helping us kick off the season in style, Monica. We hope you'll tear it up with us again.
The western azalea (Rhododendron occidentale) we planted last year in the pollinator garden at @caisoc is in full bloom right now
