Benches for the community

One of the things we are proud to do here at North Portland Tool Library is to give back to our community.  Our members all reside within the North Portland district.  This year we took the opportunity, with the help of Salvage works, to create some benches for our local Community Gardens.

Community Benches by NPTL

Three benches built and ready for drying then delivery to Johns, Pattons, and Kenton Community Garden

Giving back through building!
