Me, Too!

Are you interested in participating in our community garden, or starting one in your neighborhood? We have a diverse community garden, which includes individual vegetable beds, communal beds, areas for individuals and groups to sit and talk, and our Living Art pocket park. Residents in the area can request a bed in which they can plant their choice of vegetables and/or flowers. There is no fee, but we do ask that everyone pitch in occasionally to help with overall care of the garden. All parts of the garden are cared for by organic methods, which insure that this is a safe place for kids, adults, and the beneficial insects that we depend on for healthy and productive plants. The east half of the garden is our Living Art environment, a biologically rich pocket park for relaxation and exploration. If you’d like to join us, call (405) 524-3977 or drop by for our group work events on Sundays at 4 pm (cooler part of the year) or Sundays at 7 pm (summer).
