Learn About Gardening
Our Gardeners are encouraged to use organic gardening techniques.
Gardeners are allowed to select a planting technique of their choosing (e.g., plant directly in dirt, square foot gardening, no-till (lasagna) gardening).
Approximately 75% of the gardeners in Twin Oaks Gardens are currently using no-till gardening techniques. This method has many advantages because it recycles organic materials, reduces the amount of water needed to grow plants, builds healthy soils, minimizes weeds, reduces soil compaction, and plants thrive in this growing medium.
Gardening Made Fun
Twin Oaks Gardens is a place where an individual or family can rent a small plot of land (20’ x 25’) to plant a garden. Our goal is to provide local residents access to land to grow crops for their consumption or livelihood.
If you are new to gardening education and training opportunities are available throughout the gardening season, and a variety of tools are available at the site for the gardeners to use.
