Description:
Anyone from the Oakwood neighborhood is welcome to participate in the garden. The plot is fully communal with everyone pitching in to plant, weed, water, and harvest. Food is distributed by people taking what they will eat, with excess being dropped off at the neighborhood center for seniors and "at risk" families. Seeds and plants are donated by partipants and bought with grant money (when available). Water is donated by a neighbor. This is the 4th year for the Oakwood garden.

Volunteer/Work Schedule:
Usual communal work days are Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM, durring the gardening season.
