A 10-acre natural area and 2-acre neighborhood park site located on the border of Wilkes East and Rockwood neighborhoods in Gresham, Oregon.
We believe that everyone should have access to nature. Through forest exploration and stewardship opportunities, we hope to foster a sense of ownership of local green spaces.
We believe that everyone should have access to healthy food. Through our community garden and garden programs we hope to empower the community to learn and grow together.
We believe that the community should have a safe space to gather, to celebrate, and grow. At Nadaka, we have a nature based play area and picnic shelter for friends and families to make memories.
Our mission is to nurture nature, food, and families. We aim to create a place where people, especially children, can access healthy and nutritional food, can exercise to reduce obesity, can improve overall health outcomes, and can learn about food origins and the benefits of low-energy, low-input, local agriculture.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe that it is vital to embrace diversity, to create equitable systems, and to be inclusive of all cultures and races.
We believe that through education we can foster a love of nature and increase environmental literacy by learning GIS.
Volunteering and Ambassadors
We believe in creating a safe and welcoming space through community involvement and empowerment.
