Community Garden Workshop Planned For Tulsa

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A community garden is one way of easing concerns about food security and sustainability. A two-day workshop will begin Thursday to teach skills that will eventually lead to more community gardens.
 
Pat Henderson and her dog Sophie came out to her community garden plot. It's a Global Gardens site across From Asbury Methodist Church.

Primarily it serves students at Union's 6 and 7th grade Center and some at the high school. There are a few community garden plots here too, like the one Pat Henderson and Sophie are working. 

Colby Craige is the garden educator there.

"How many years have you had this spot?" Craige asked Pat Henderson.

"This is my third year," she said. "Once you get it planted, there's not much to do but watch it grow."
 
Colby said some families don't know anything about growing food, but they want to learn.
 
How do you organize those interested people into a sustainable group, a community.? Well, the Global Gardens folks, Tulsa's Food Security Council and the Tulsa Community Gardening Association reached out to the National Community Gardens Association for help.

"They'll come in and lead, facilitate a workshop for our community," Colby said.

Not a workshop on growing food, but how to grow a sustainable community - so folks like Pat Henderson will always have a place.
 
"This takes me back to my childhood," she said.

 And all those childhood memories can live again in a community garden.

The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. June 1 and 2 in the Innovation Commons at OU Tulsa, 4502 E. 41st Street. Registration is $10 and includes breakfast, lunch and refreshments for both days. 
 
Participants will also get a one-year ACGA membership and the Growing Communities curriculum.

Advance registration is required, and there are a limited number of spots. You can register at Eventbrite, email info@tulsaaacga.org or call 918-592-1466 for more information.
