New Victory Gardens Tour

  • SixTwelve Inc 612 Northwest 29th Street Oklahoma City, OK, 73103 United States (map)

During WWII, more than 12 million Victory Gardens were planted in cities across the country, and home gardeners produced a third of all vegetables consumed in the U.S. Today, urban farms, community gardens, and front yard and backyard gardens are all part of a fast-growing revival in growing food in cities across the country. Join us for a free, kid-friendly tour of two neighborhood gardening efforts in the heart of OKC - CommonWealth Urban Farms & SixTwelve.

CommonWealth Urban Farms includes vegetable gardens, a cut flower garden, compost operation, hoop house, rainwater collection system, fledgling food forest, and neighbors’ front yard gardens. Tours of SixTwelve include the vegetable garden, rain garden, hoop house, mini orchard and community center. Drop in anytime between 10 am to 1 pm for tours at both locations, located just 7 blocks apart!
