Oklahoma City Urban Agrarian: Grow your own

See also

This week, the Downtown Oklahoma City Botanical Garden, The Myriad Gardens will be offering classes for the community on Urban Agrarian practices, teaching basic gardening skills, which adds to a growing list of community offerings supporting growning and producing food from community resources for self and others.

These classes come on the heels of Oklahoma City Council passing and bypassing some Urban Agrarian actions recently. http://www.examiner.com/article/chicken-act-other-urban-agrarian-decisio...

The fact that Chicken Class is being offered Friday http://www.examiner.com/article/oklahoma-city-gets-chicken-classes-but-n... , and general gardening is offered Saturday appears a hopeful sign for progress on the original set of options sought.

The Myriad Gardens classes have a fee, and require pre-registration. http://www.myriadgardens.com/. The Friday Chicken Class offers space for brown bagging, while the Saturday class for general gardening offers a catered lunch.

Fairly close to downtown Oklahoma City, for over 20 years there has been a cluster of persons very interested in green spaces, parks and community gardens. http://www.examiner.com/article/central-park-community-garden-wins-5-000... doing all kinds of community good.

Sustainable also is popular and has it's own URBAN FARM no less. http://www.sustainableokc.org/ here is their calendar sustainable calendar http://www.sustainableokc.org/events/ok-events/.

Including the Master Gardener program, where certification can be earned indicating the completion of classes and a an advanced understanding of general gardening processes, or how to solve general gardening puzzles. http://mastergardener.okstate.edu/
