WNA Plant Sale – Get ready!

Raid Your Garden for the 2020 Woodstock Neighborhood Plant Sale

We need your help for this year’s Woodstock Neighborhood Plant Sale, which benefits the Woodstock Community Center. The plant sale is scheduled for Saturday, May 9th, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the community center, 5905 SE 43rd Ave.

This sale depends primarily on donations from generous gardeners in the community. We are looking for perennials, as well as vegetable starts, herbs, ground covers, native plants, ornamental grasses, houseplants, and small trees and shrubs. We encourage you to contribute plants from your garden, potting them by March or early April in preparation for the sale.

Proceeds from this sale support volunteer efforts to provide routine maintenance, including custodial service and supplies, for the community center, as part of an agreement with Portland Parks that has helped keep the center open since 2004.

Drop your contributions at the Woodstock Community Center on May 8th, between noon and 7 PM. If you need empty pots or an alternate drop-off time, call Sandy Profeta at 503-771-7724 or Terry Griffiths at 503-771-0011.

WNA February General Meeting – Wednesday, 2/5 at 7PM

Woodstock Neighborhood Association needs you!

WNA will be electing a new board in May of 2020. It’s not too soon to consider serving.

The WNA board currently has several open seats. Acting as an Area Representative is a simple way to begin serving on the WNA board. A new board will be elected at the General Meeting on May 6, 2020. Board positions include: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Area Representative (5), and various Committee Chairs. All you need is enthusiasm and a few free evenings a month.

Anyone who works or lives within Woodstock Neighborhood is already a member. The purpose of the association is to improve the livability of the City of Portland and of the Woodstock neighborhood; to promote and support projects and activities that contribute to these goals; and to provide a means for citizen participation and communication in determination of affairs which directly and indirectly affect the Woodstock neighborhood.


For organizing and representation purposes, the neighborhood is subdivided into five geographic sections as illustrated in this simplified map. The Board has positions for an Area Representative from each geographic area.

WNA January General Meeting – Special Presenter!

Want to know more about aging in place within a community of helping neighbors? Come hear a presentation by Eastside Village!

A representative of Eastside Village will present information at our upcoming General Meeting.

Eastside Village is an interdependent, intergenerational community of neighbors helping neighbors. Its members are individuals and couples who prefer staying in their homes and neighborhoods rather than moving into retirement communities.
However, the Village is not just for those near or already into retirement. It’s for people of all ages who value being part of Portland’s eastside community and want to strengthen their link to it, including through volunteering.
Membership is open to all residents of this area age 18 and older, to include people with disabilities who are not yet seniors. Initial outreach for Eastside Village was made possible in part through grant funding from the City of Portland and SE Uplift’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program. Eastside Village is a program of Villages NW, a nonprofit organization.
