In the beginning, use of the land and access to water was granted to the Oldsmar Organic Community Garden (OOCG) by the City of Oldsmar and Lowe's donated the materials for OOCG to build a fence! The big project began on Saturday, November 17th, 2012 at 7:30 AM at Bicentennial Park. It was a huge milestone!
In 2014 the OOCG established its 501c3 non-profit status and we've been growing ever since. As of 2019, the garden has 43 raised beds of various sizes to choose from. In addition to the expansion of our raised beds, 2019 also brought the additions of a greenhouse, biodigester, compost system, shaded educational area, Florida-native pollinator garden, and micro food forest!
