Located at 1302 North 60th Street on the south side of Omaha’s historic Benson neighborhood, Benson Community Garden, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation registered with the State of Nebraska. We are looking for individuals who would be interested in becoming members of the garden; volunteers who will help us operate the garden; and sponsors to support our mission.
We are looking for dedicated community gardeners this year who can, in addition to working their own plot, help maintain the outside-of-the-fence neighbor garden and common areas. In a nutshell …we need YOU!
Last year we had a few gardeners who planted their plots and abandoned it. That was a challenge for everyone, especially the folks who had to adopt the gardens. Before applying, please seriously consider the commitment of time it takes to maintain a thriving garden …especially during those critical hot weather weeks in August. It’s sweaty, but it’s FUN!
To strengthen our community by providing an urban agricultural space where individuals and families can come together to grow farm-fresh foods, share tools and resources, and learn about gardening and nutrition.
The garden also serves as an open air venue for entertainment as well as educational opportunities where people can learn about and discuss local foods, nutrition and sustainability.
