Oasis Community Garden
The Oasis Community Garden Project is an integral component in fulfilling Junior League of Ogden’s mission to improve its community through effective action. The planning for the garden began in 2002 and a once derelict inner-city lot has been transformed into an urban oasis.
The 1.7-acre garden is located at 2445 Monroe Blvd., and features open space, a Learning Pavilion, teaching gardens, ADA and elder friendly raised beds, traditional community garden plots, two garden sheds, fruit trees, a dry stream bed, seasonal restroom enclosure, lighted, paved pathway and a gathering area for group functions. All of these improvements have been made possible through generous financial and in-kind contributions from the community, including the Weber County Recreation, Arts, Museums, & Parks program (RAMP).
The garden directly targets issues of food equity through education and access, by creating a place where individuals can learn how to plant, grow, harvest, and prepare healthy food. Its design integrates landscape ecology, food production, and community engagement.
There are several ways to get involved in the Oasis Garden.
Plots are available to community members to purchase for a season. You may also donate a plot to community members in need. Garden plots are available starting at $25/plot for the growing season. Plot includes water and access to garden tools during open garden hours.
For information about the upcoming growing season, volunteering in the garden, or if you have an organization or large group that is interested in sponsoring or performing service work please email the Garden Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
