OSWEGO, NY – The new community garden in Oswego will be holding a lottery to designate garden plots to local individuals or groups interested.
The garden is a project of the Oswego Center for Sustainable Living.
The plot lottery will be held on Sunday at noon at the garden site located on East Schuyler Street between East Seventh and Ninth streets.
In the event of rain or inclement weather, the lottery will be held at the Butch Ponzi Youth Center located at Fort Ontario.
Those who are interested but not able to attend (due to religious commitments of the day or otherwise) may contact the Oswego Center for Sustainable Living to still be included in the drawing.
Oswego’s newest community garden is taking root this spring.
Community involvement is encouraged and welcomed.
The garden is a creative initiative between the city of Oswego and the Oswego Center for Sustainable Living.
There are 50 plot sites available and they are free of charge.
The garden is open to all and there are designated plots designed to be more accessible for senior citizens or those with physical limitations.
There are plots available for families, work or school groups, and organizations.
The garden is being divided into these separate plots, but will also have a communal gardening area open to those who do not wish to have their own plot but would like to be involved.
The intention of the garden is to foster greater community connection, the ability to grow and share fresh, local, healthy food, and to support sustainable living within the Oswego community.
