Big Event Spring 2011

This past weekend's Big Event Work day was a huge success! Thanks to the hard work and generosity of UCO and OCU students and youth groups from across Oklahoma, we accomplished a lot of work at our urban farm and at Central Park Community Garden.

At central park students helped remove Bermuda grass, edge and prepare garden beds for planting
 The big projects at our farm site were setting raised beds in our field and building compost bins for our large scale compost initiative.

We were greatly impressed with all of the volunteers enthusiasm and tireless energy. Thank you all so much for spending a day with us and come back soon!
