Community Garden

The Oakridge Community Garden (OCG) Program is part of the Oakridge Community Association (OCA). It is operated by the Association with direction from an OCG committee. To participate in OCG events, both an Oakridge Community Association and Oakridge Community Garden memberships are required. 

To purchase both, an OCA membership and Oakridge Community Garden (OCG) membership, CLICK HERE.

Due to Covid 19, we  do plan to have communal plots but no dedicated plots for the 2020 growing season

For 2020 Program, we would require OCA membership and a $10/ family fee to cover CG general expenses.  

Registration would also request a donation to help establish the OCG. 

Through the OCG Program, the Community Association offers multiple opportunities to participate in gardening and garden related events.

OCG Members will require abiding by the OCG Guidelines and will be required to sign a Waiver.
