Community Garden

Community Garden
Broken Arrow Neighbors dedicated our “Growing Generosity” Community Food Garden on April 2, 2016. This garden, a vision of Executive Director, Kim Goddard and the Broken Arrow Neighbors Special Projects Board Committee and Board of Directors, began before the new facility was built. Our Garden sits on the site of our old building, and is a great addition to the basic services BAN provides to our community. We currently have 12 raised beds, 2 flower beds, an in-ground garden, and a children’s keyhole garden. BAN is partnering with our Public Library to provide education, horticulture, environmental stewardship, and nutrition programs to adults and children. We are looking forward to future plantings and growth of the garden in general. We hope you can check it out and become a part of this great project! picture 1

Looking for Helping Hands

With the opening of our Community Garden comes a new opportunity for volunteering at Broken Arrow Neighbors. We value our Volunteers and make every effort to offer volunteer positions that fit the needs of those who desire to serve. We are looking for some “garden gurus” who can assume a leadership role in mentoring and scheduling volunteers for the garden. We have several resources available to help, but we need those with “gardening expertise” to help us. If you desire to adopt-a- bed, volunteer in our garden, mentor others, or help in other ways, please let us know. We currently have volunteer opportunities in the following areas:

  • Garden Leaders
  • Garden Mentor
  • Watering
  • Weeding
  • Churning Compost
  • Mowing
  • Tool Maintenance
  • Landscape
  • Garden Space

Children’s Keyhole Garden Area

BAN is excited about our children’s keyhole garden. This space is designed to be available for activities that will stimulate learning and exploration of gardening principles and inspire a desire to eat healthy for life! Partnering with the Public Library, the garden will be available for hands-on activities for children to play, plant, explore and learn about how the food cycle provides food from the ground to the table.

Garden “Wish List”

As with any new program, we have discovered that we need additional tools, equipment and garden needs to provide what is necessary for our gardeners to use. To see a list of the items we would like to secure for our garden, please check out the link below. Thanks for helping us!
