Introduction Chickadee Gardens has moved from a small, green oasis in the urban center of Portland, Oregon, zone 8b, to Saint Helens, some 35 miles outside of Portland to our dream of two acres. Our focus is native plantings but we also love (non-invasive) ornamentals. Sustainable gardening is our goal. Changes occur regularly in the design of the garden but the focus remains: this garden is for the chickadees (and bees, and bugs, and husband, and cats, and....) I also work for Joy Creek Nursery in Scappoose, Oregon so I have access to an amazing variety of plants. We also have a very small farm with chickens, a turkey and a large vegetable and fruit growing area as well as a small orchard and honey bees.
Interests Gardening! Arts, travel, herding cats, trying to do my bit to make the planet a little better
