Our mission is to enhance the well-being and beauty of the community by assisting people in growing fresh produce, providing locally-grown food to people in need, increasing social interaction in the community, and creating an educational garden in an attractive setting.

The Oxford Community Garden is located next to the OUT Bus Depot (the former grounds of the National Guard Armory grounds) on University Ave at Bramlett Blvd. See map for directions.  And take a look at this satellite image.

The best way to contact us is by writing to oxfordcga@gmail.com.  Emails sent here will be read by the garden president, Jason Hoeksema.
