Event Info:

We’re delighted to welcome Dale Spoonemore of From Seed to Spoon. Dale has an inspiring story of how he turned his backyard into an urban farm, benefiting his family with healthy food and time out doors, and helping him to treat anxiety and depression. You’ll learn all about how to plant, grow, harvest, and prepare your own food using Dale’s free iOS and Android mobile app. This will also be a hands-on demonstration showing how you can use Smart Pots, raised beds, and other strategies to simplify the amount of work and effort required to get started.

Instructor: Dale Spoonemore, founder of From Seed to Spoon

About Commonwealth Urban Farms

CommonWealth Urban Farms formed out of a small group of people who began meeting in the fall of 2010 with the common goal of turning vacant lots in near NW OKC into productive green spaces that would benefit the local community. Since then, many more people have joined in to initiate and develop the urban farm, composting site, and educational programming.

Every Saturday morning year round, we offer a work/learning experience for volunteers to come help with composting and gardening, and learn how to grow food and build healthy soil. We offer frequent workshops on topics ranging from growing veggies, to rainwater harvesting, to raising backyard chickens. You can find a schedule on our Garden School page here. Tours of the farm are available on the first Saturday of each month at 9am.

  1. I attended this class and I can honestly say I was so impressed at the information we received and the way you made me feel like anyone really can grow their own food. Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you, Mariah! Feedback like this re-energizes me and reminds me why we do all of this. Thank you, Mariah! We had a great time with everyone and look forward to coming back there soon. We also have classes continuing all throughout the year, and free beginner classes monthly at OSU-OKC!
