We Receive $25,000 Federal Home Loan Bank Grant for our KitchenGardenOrchardPark in Turley/NorthTulsa

We just received word that we have been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank community reinvestment program for our work on the miracle among the ruins The Welcome Table KitchenGarden Park where we recently planted 40 fruit trees for an orchard for our area, located at 6005 N. Johnstown Ave. near suburban hills edition in tulsa and near the historic downtown of Turley. We already have several community garden beds underway at the park, and our first family gardeners growing their healthy food there.

Thanks to Freedom Bank in Turley for their cosponsorship of the grant with us, and to the Tallgrass Resource and Conservation District of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture for helping us to submit the grant. As soon as we receive the funds we will be doing more park preparation and cleanup on this site where abandoned houses and trash piled up for years on one of our busy thoroughfares. Thanks also to Rita Scott of buy local, buy fresh and Sustainable Oklahoma, and to Rep. Seneca Scott for help in partnering with us.

To volunteer at the park, to have your own garden bed, call 918-691-3223 or the Welcome Table Community Center at 918-794-4637, or email to

Spread the good news about this good news which is just the beginning of much more to come.
