“…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.”
About the Garden
Founded in 2010, the Benson Community Garden is located at the corner of 60th & Lafayette Streets in Omaha, Nebraska and provides space for individuals and families to grow fruits and vegetables for their personal consumption.
The garden also offers the “Earth Stage” for live music performances, movie nights, and educational offerings. We host a food pantry which provides foods for people in the area facing food insecurity.
HOURS: Sunrise to Sunset daily
BUDGET: Our operational revenue comes from gardeners’ plot fees totaling $1,440.00. Expenses include: annual insurance policy, taxes, new gardening hand tools, replacement of broken tools, fuel for equipment, equipment repair, yard waste bags, materials (as needed), and other expenses.
