Oregon Garden BrewCamp supports local and regional nonprofit organizations. A portion of every ticket sale goes to our host, The Oregon Garden, which is worthy of everyone’s support and is an important part of the 2018 festival.
The Oregon Garden is an 80-acre botanical garden, featuring more than 20 specialty gardens showcasing the diverse botanical beauty that can be found in the Willamette Valley and throughout the Pacific Northwest. The Garden has educational specialty gardens for everyone, from the Sensory Garden and Rose Garden to the Children’s Garden and A-mazing Water Garden. It also offers a complimentary, narrated tram tour April–October.
The Oregon Garden is committed to sustainability. The Rediscovery Forest is managed in partnership with the Oregon Forest Resources Institute and reveals insights on forest management. Visitors will also encounter one of the largest collections of miniature conifers in the country, in the Conifer Garden, and a 400-year-old Signature Oak, which is an Oregon Heritage Tree, in the Oak Grove. The Wetlands Habitat, which cools the City of Silverton’s treated wastewater through a series of pools, brims with local wildlife. The Garden also promotes sustainability through green roofs, composting, edible landscaping, barley straw algae control and more.
The Oregon Garden is overseen by The Oregon Garden Foundation Board of Directors, which is composed of volunteers and is recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity. The Oregon Garden Foundation is dedicated to the promotion and growth of The Oregon Garden.
