community garden

From the Ground Up is our community garden space that grows food to help build food sovereignty in the community of North Tulsa.


With the food grown in our community garden, we want to supplement our local neighbor’s health by providing access to fruits and vegetables that you can get locally.

Friends on Fridays

Community members are invited to get involved by volunteering their time in the garden where participants can get to know more about the process of growing food. Volunteer days are on Fridays.

All work is guided by our community garden specialist. Garden tasks for volunteers might include seeding and transplanting, watering and weeding, or harvesting and wash. Also learn about companion planting. No prior gardening experience required. Minors must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. 


Our goal is to share our harvest with local food banks and neighbors in the North Tulsa community. This year we are growing lots of vegetables in the Brassica family such as broccoli and its relatives, the Solanaceae family, such as tomatoes, the Cucurbitaceae family, like green and yellow squash and the Fabaceae family, which are legumes like beans.

The garden is active in all seasons and is a place that can be enjoyed and appreciated by all. If you need some food, bring your own bag, come visit and simply ask.
