Buying the People’s Produce

The People’s Garden is between the Portland and Shawnee neighborhoods, and this community project is seeking to aid in the revitalization of this area. You’ll find the People’s Garden at 409 Northwestern Parkway, right outside the Portland neighborhood.

Louisville People's Garden

It’s a 5-acre piece of land that has an orchard, two greenhouses and the community garden itself, not to mention the new farmer’s market. The community garden is the main feature. Volunteers are always welcome to prune trees, work in a greenhouse or plant something in the garden.

Down by the Riverside

The People’s Garden is just outside of Portland and next to the Shawnee golf course and park. You’ll find both Shawnee and Portland on the banks of the Ohio River.

Portland was once an independent city, nestled right on the banks of the river. It was the largest of the major settlements along the river at one time, and it’s packed with history. The Squire Earick House is the oldest known wood frame building in all of Louisville. It was built in 1812. You’ll find many historic homes along Northwestern Parkway. The Portland neighborhood was named a Preserve America community by Laura Bush in 2006. Portland even has its own museum. Many buildings in Portland were built before the Civil War.

See it for yourself and stroll down the River Walk, which links Portland with downtown Louisville. You can take the River Walk all the way to Shawnee, and find your way to the People’s Garden.
