North Tulsa Community Gardens Network (NTCGN)
What is a community garden?
“A community garden is a plot of land collectively gardened and cultivated by a group of people or an organization. The land may be an individual plot or shared plots under public or private ownership. Community gardens are often used to produce fruit, vegetables, and/or ornamentals and can be found in neighborhoods, schools, connected to institutions such as hospitals, and on residential housing grounds” (CONNECT Our Future).
