The Big Garden is a series of community gardens located primarily in east Omaha. Founded in 2005, the Big Garden seeks to teach neighbors to grow nutritious food and encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity while growing community. The Big Garden's mission is to improve nutritional health and facilitate community development in the Omaha metro area by building the capacity of community organizations, congregations, and schools through the act of gardening.
Interested in gardening with the Big Garden? Our pull-down menu of gardens lists the mission of each garden, its location and contact information for each site. To inquire about gardening at a particular site, please call the person listed as the site coordinator for that location. Each site has its own policies for new gardeners; some gardens have plots available to be adopted, while others grow food for food pantries, or choose to have all gardeners share the harvest.
