Fifth Annual Community Gardeners Meeting at Roseville City Hall.  Please come and meet your community garden neighbors, share gardening ideas and receive information about upcoming MN Green seed and plant distributions.  There will also be information on safe use of pesticides in gardens.

The Oasis Park Community Gardens will continue to be participating in the Minnesota Green Program.  Minnesota Green is a 24-year old program, administered by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, that distributes plants and seed material that has been donated by various nurseries and garden centers, free to community garden spaces throughout the Twin Cities.

Tom McKusick, a Horticultural Society staff member, who also has a plot at Oasis Garden, has offered to include Oasis in the 2016 MN Green program, and to continue to coordinate the distribution of donated plants to any gardeners who are interested.  Please remember that the donated seeds and plants are for use in the community garden, and not to be taken home, or given away to friends, or family members.

Please consider giving us your email address this year and go “GREEN.”  Email saves paper and postage and enables us to get pertinent information to you much more quickly!

If you have any suggestions, questions or concerns, now or throughout the year, please feel free to call us at (651) 792-7006.
