Check Out the New Hoffman Gardens

With the demolition of the Hoffman House Studio Building, we now have a nice park space on the lot.
More than 20 volunteers showed up Wednesday, June 11 to plant the berms with a wide variety of vegetation.
A big ‘Thank You’ goes to Karen Babbitt for the design and for leading the planting effort.
Here are some views of the big day.  If you’d like to volunteer to help water the Gardens this summer, contact us at or call (503) 368-3846.
