June 24th through June 28th, Monday through Friday, 9am to noon - we’ll provide snacks and all materials needed for art projects and camp activities. Campers must be potty trained, able to self-sooth and follow two-step directions.

Cost: $150 for the week. Limited scholarships are available by order of first come-first served and by need. Before care will be available this week, but we will not be offering after care. You may pay for before care session-by-session or you may purchase a whole week of before care. For more information on scholarships or camp, please email us at contact@sixtwelve.org.

Whether you start with a field, backyard or wooded acreage, you will learn how to transition your plot of land to a forest garden just by mimicking Nature. Local & regional forest medicines will be emphasized, including their propagation, cultivation, harvest, preservation, and use. Our discussion will include leaves, flowers, twigs, stems, roots, tubers, rhizomes, and bark among the plant parts used.

SixTwelve Early Earth Day Celebration!

FREE EVENT

Annually, we have raised funding for our SixTwelve community kitchen through a Cake Walk Bake Off that always occurs on the Saturday before Easter. We have also held a potluck and plant & seed exchange on the Saturday before Earth Day. This allowed us to get out and support our neighbor’s Earth Day events. THIS YEAR BOTH EVENTS FALL ON THE SAME DAY! So we’re throwing a BIG, all day celebration of our own. Join us for all or part of the fun. We’d love to spend some time with you!

COFFEE TALK | 8AM

Join us for Coffee Talk: Idea Incubator every Saturday morning at SixTwelve from 8-9am. We'll provide the coffee, you provide your mug. This is our chance to get to know our community and its needs. Come see us!

CAKE WALK BAKE OFF | 11AM

We’re proud to present our Fourth Annual Cake Walk/Bake Off to raise funds for our community kitchen! This kitchen provides a space for local chefs and bakers to give cooking classes for kids & adults, for community meal prep and food for events. This fun event takes place the day before Easter, so that winners can take home a delicious family desert (Or you can just save it for yourself! We don’t judge.) All funds raised will go towards purchasing the tools needed for different cooking classes. If you’re a local baker (professionally or personally) and you’re interested in donating a cake to this event, click on the link below to register! The more cakes we have, the longer the cake walk!

This year our celebrity judges include Annie Tucker: Marketing Manager of the Social Order and creator of “Take A Bite Blog,” Greg Elwell: Food Writer Know-It-All and Guru of “I Ate Oklahoma,” Scotty Irani of “In the Kitchen With Scotty” and KAUT43’s “Rise and Shine,” and SixTwelve Co Founder, Amy Young.

The winning cake’s recipe will get a shout out on the “in the Kitchen with Scotty” segment of KAUT43’s “Rise and Shine” show, EdibleOKC’s website and In the Kitchen with Scotty’s website!

COMMUNITY TRASH FREE POTLUCK | 1-2PM

Participants can bring a potluck dish (vegetarian appreciated but not necessary) to share in a community meal. This is a no trash event so bring your own reusable plate, silverware and drinks.

FRIENDSHIP SEED & PLANT EXCHANGE | 2-4PM

Join us for our Earthday celebration. SixTwelve works toward a community based around growing food. The Friendship Seed & Plant Exchange provides a chance for local gardeners and farmers to connect with others who enjoy a relationship with nature through growing plants and food. Garden leftovers and plants that need new homes are ideal for sharing at this gathering. The event is open to new and experienced growers.

GO GRIIIN DANCE PARTAYYYY with BROTHERS GRIIIN!!! | 10PM - 1AM

Get your dancin’ shoes on because BROTHERS GRIIIN is BAAAAAACK!!! Join this fantastical duo (who also just happen to be the drummers for The Flaming Lips) as we get our groove on and dance the night away! This event is free and all proceeds from alcohol sales go to SixTwelve! Come boogie with us!

Growing a Bouquet Garden

Start planning now to have a garden filled with flowers all summer long. Learn about the easiest flowers to grow in central OKC, from old friends like zinnias, sunflowers, marigolds and snapdragons to lesser-known beauties such as asiatic lilies, Lisianthus and Ammi. We'll show you how to plan and prepare your garden bed, and discuss seeds vs. transplants, annuals vs. perennials, and the benefits of trellising and succession planting. Elia will cover harvesting techniques and post-harvest care for longest vase life. Participants will have a chance to start some flower seedlings of their own with seeds and supplies provided.

$30 for non-members, $15 for members.

Elia Woods is co-founder and farm manager of CommonWealth Urban Farms. Her first attempt at gardening when she was twenty years old was a complete failure, and she’s been happily making mistakes and learning ever since. Elia has been growing and selling cut flowers for the last five years, and loves marinating in the beauty of it all.

SixTwelve Community Kitchen Reveal + Sweet Potato Pie Sale + Honoring of Scotty Irani

Join us at SixTwelve, Friday, November 30th from 6-8pm for a celebration of how far we’ve come with our Community Kitchen install, our annual sweet potato pie sale (made from sweet potatoes that the Young School PreK at 612 harvested out of our garden) and an honoring of Scotty Irani of In the Kitchen with Scotty. Chef Scotty is a local chef (and a bit of a culinary celebrity on Freedom 43 - Tuesday mornings) who has supported SixTwelve from the beginning! Scotty helped get our annual Sweet Potato Pie Sale and Cake Walk Bake Off started three years ago (raising money for our teaching/community kitchen), participated in programming and was even one of our Mardi Gras kings two years ago! He writes for Edible OKC and Oklahoma Magazine and supports so many local organizations with his gifts that we consider him a treasure!

Please come celebrate the holidays with us, buy a pie for a family or holiday event, check out the newly installed kitchen where we’ll be holding cooking classes and help us say thank you to Scotty for all that he has done for SixTwelve!

If you’re a chef, a baker, or a cook that would like to contribute to our pie sale by baking a pie, we’ll provide the sweet potatoes. All you have to do is sign up in the form below! We’d be so grateful! All pies must be delivered Thursday, November 29th or Friday, November 30th, but you can make an appointment to pick up enough sweet potatoes for as many pies as you’re willing to bake the week before (November 20-24). Thank you!

Herb Walk: Herbal Identification and Basic Healing Practices

Herb Walk: Herbal Identification and Basic Healing Practices

In this session we will enter into the world of herbal healing by using all of our senses to identify different medicinal plants on an Herb Walk through the garden, start our own herbarium, learn the healing properties and how to use a variety of herbs that surround us.

$30 for non-members, $15 for members.

Stephanie Holiman is an herbalist, organic gardener, and permaculture designer. "I have developed a passion for herbal medicine and all the experiences that surround working with and creating your own health and vitality; how we nourish ourselves, what choices we make about our lives, and taking a fierce stance for healing ourselves when things go awry. I have learned to grow, care for, harvest, and dry my own herbs and wildcraft others everywhere I go. I have learned to read the messages of the herbs that voluntarily spring up in my garden. In the past 10 years of working with herbs I have made my own tinctures, oils, salves, syrups, and herbal infusions to care of all of my health needs and those of my husband and our 4 year old son.

I am here to teach, coach, and guide others in gardening, plant medicine, and the inward journey towards healing themselves."
