Park and Garden
Park and Garden Center
A place that provides food, comfort, peace and service, all grown together.

Grow and Serve

For anyone who enjoys gardening, whether it be working in a vegetable garden or planting and tending flowers, we invite you to come and help us provide nourishing food and beauty for the community around us. As fresh vegetables become available throughout the growing season, a vegetable stand is utilized to dispense whatever is currently available to the public.

Happening Now

In the Park, we are preparing three new flower beds for planting. Two of these beds are circular 30 foot diameter, while the third is in the shape of the State of Oklahoma. There are curently 10,500 flowers growing in our greenhouse that will be planted as soon as the weather allows. Four round redwood picnic tables have just been installed and a firepit is currently being built between these picnic tables. A new bridge is under construction that will be installed between the Park and the Garden. Also, 5,000 onion plants and 750 lbs. of seed potatoes have just been planted in the school-furnished garden.

Coming Up

All remaining raised beds are currently being prepared for planting various vegetables as spring nears. Beets and turnips will soon be planted in the school-furnished garden.

History

The original Garden was started in the spring of 2011 with the construction of sixty 20'x4' rasied beds. Since the original venture, the Garden has more than doubled in size by utilizing available land as a traditional garden. In the fall of 2011, we began an effort to finish a park area that was originally started in the mid 1950's, when more than 35 decidous trees were planted. Now, 76 new evergreen or flowering trees have also been planted, a 750' gravel walkway installed, and a flowerbed utilizing 99 clay pots of various sizes has been built. In 2014, our neighbor, Del City High School, allowed us the use of two land areas for gardening.
