To kick off construction of an underground parking garage, a new academic building and the new student center at Portland Community College Cascade Campus, the college will be giving away all the plants in the parking lot between North Albina Avenue and Mississippi, south of Jessup Street.
To support this community event, Hoffman Construction, the construction manager and general contractor for the campus project, will host a free Bratwurst barbeque featuring local sausages with all the fixings to people taking plants home.
First-come-first-serve plants will be available by self-serve excavation, so don’t forget your shovels. Additionally, the college will be digging up trees that can be salvaged with an excavator. All plants and trees in the parking lot are available, however proper transportation must be provided by the person taking the plants.
