With a little help from our friends…

Planting full speed ahead! Potatoes, Yukon gold and purple along with our favorite little Napoli carrots and sorrel. In a bed not far way is 4 lovely rows of rainbow Swiss chard and more salad bowl lettuce planted from seeds donated by our garden friends at CommonWealth. Still growing from winter planting we have beets, kale, brussel sprouts and lots of very hearty and fragrant herbs. Please consider which day you would like to commit to watering (all new hoses and sprayer this season!) this season and reach out to me either by email, commenting here or texting-you may even wish to pick up the phone and call or drop by the garden every Saturday morning at 8 until we call it done! Thanks so much for growing as a community right here in the urban garden downtown OKC! On Wednesday nights at 7pm our amazing Midtown has jazz night crawl so join us in the garden for evening connection with super tunes inspiring us from all around!

Can’t wait to harvest these jewels

Welcome to our community garden!

Dear Community Gardeners,
Urban Neighbors Community Garden is a community growing space dedicated to organically growing vegetables, herbs and flowers in the company of friends and neighbors. We partner with Fertile Ground in composting; in essence creating amazing soil. Olthia and The Nature Conservancy worked in our space to create a pocket prairie garden which hosts super pollinators keeping with our mission of all things sustainable. Participation comes with responsibility and a bountiful harvest!

The blog is intended to be a connection tool for us as we grow crops from the soil and expand knowledge as well as experience in the garden . Meet me here for organizing our thoughts on the garden, introducing new gardeners and people that keep the garden running smoothly with updates, recipes and opportunities.

I hope you find this blog useful – follow our garden on Instagram at urbangardendokc. We will also keep you advised on the Urban Neighbors website, Facebook page and via twitter at urbanneighbors.
Let’s enjoy a bountiful gardening season!
