A Farm for the People, by the People

A Farm for the People, by the People

Tucked into the Central Park neighborhood near the Paseo is a series of houses and lots that have been turned into flower and vegetable gardens. They weave around sheds, old houses and fences and make a network of fresh food and community. Commonwealth Urban Farms exists to connect the city to the ground and to each other through fresh food, gardening and composting. Most recently, they dedicated a hoop house on an empty lot so they can grow through the winter. The project is a direct result of OKC Thunder player Kyle Singler's $10,000 donation and his desire to support the groups efforts. To get involved in their many projects and workshops, start at their Facebook page.
