OCFP has worked with neighborhoods, schools, and cities, churches to establish Community Gardens for local communities to grow food.
If you are interested in growing your own food and meeting your neighbors then you might want to consider joining one of the community gardens in and around Stillwater. Or maybe you are interested in starting a community garden in your own neighborhood. OCFP would be happy to help you organize and get started.
Below are the community gardens OCFP has helped to start. All of the gardens are in the Eastern Metro area.
