FoGG's Outreach Program started with a Small Neighborhood Grant, received from the East portland Neighborhood Office (EPNO) in early 2009. Friend of Gateway Green Board Members and volunteers have tabled at many community events, including Sunday Parkways, the East Porland Concert Series at Ventura Park, Movies in the Park events, Metro Trail fairs and more.
The Friends group also manages a Facebook page and a Twitter account to help share news to the Portland community. We launched our first website in October 2009 with the help of Jeff Ong as our volunteer webmaster and an email notifcation list was established. In April 2016, we launched this updated version of our website, with the help of Daylight Studio.
We will continue outreach as we move into the final stages of design work and Phase 2 construction (tentatively schedule for September 2018). You'll find us tabling as Sunday Parkways and much more in 2018! Keep in touch with our events here.
