Welcome to Yard Sharing!

Use our map to list a property you have that you can host a garden on, or to post a listing looking for a place to garden.

The new YardSharing.org is no longer limited to just Portland Oregon, we now accept posts from anywhere in the world as long as you are sharing your yard, or looking for a place to garden you are so very welcome here.

 

Looking for a place to garden? First use the map, are there any listings close? If not post a looking for ad. Look for someplace you can walk past all the time, someplace you can run to if you need something else for your dinner party. The idea here is to keep it close if possible. The closer you are to your food the more sustainable your meal becomes.

Welcome to YardSharing.org 2.0.  Our Yard Sharing map is now Nation Wide! If you are here because you just got a couple emails from us That you signed up for our website, that would be because we are converting the old system to what we hope will be a better new system. You can logon here and change your profile info if you like.
