Through its three retail stores, Al’s provides an extensive selection of plants, plant care essentials, garden accessories, outdoor furniture and home décor.

Al’s Garden Center currently employs more than 200 employees with three local growing facilities, a 6-acre garden center in Woodburn, a full-service garden center in Gresham, and a 10.5-acre garden center in Sherwood.

The Story of Al's Garden Center

In 1948, Al and Ann Bigej proudly opened Al’s Fruit Stand. Housed in an unused chicken coop along Hwy 99E in Woodburn, Al began selling fruit and produce to local residents and tourists who traveled along the highway.

Al's In The Community


We are proud to announce that Al’s Garden Center has been adopted by Gervais Middle School, through the Adopt a Farmer program. The Adopt a Farmer program is designed to give agriculture a voice by connecting students to their rural roots.

By pairing a middle school classroom with a farm or ranch for the entire academic year, students can build a relationship with their adopted farmer. Oregon Aglink funds a field trip to the farm for the students where they will see, hear, touch, smell and get a taste of what life is like on the farm. In addition to the field trip, the farmer visits the classroom 2-3 times throughout the rest of the school year to engage students in the science behind farming, while sharing his or her story of Oregon agriculture.


For more information about the Adopt a Farmer program please visit their website.





Al’s Garden Center believes in supporting our local communities. We take pride in being a good neighbor and doing our best to respond to the needs of those around us. Al’s demonstrates this support by making donations every year to local schools, churches, community gardens and many other non-profit organizations that surround our three store locations.
