Oasis Gardens

The Oasis Garden project was designed by volunteer senior citizen Donald Graves and his wife Claudia along with our Interium Director, retired pastor, Carol Burgeson. The vision is to create a space where folks of all walks of life can garden and create a system of sustainability, providing food for themselves and their neighbors. The benefits of the Oasis project expand well beyond the nutrition aspect of farm fresh ingredients. Our volunteers can “dig in” and feel the earth while sharing their stories and uplifting each other. The current site allows up to 10 clients to work at a time and the demand is much greater. We have several senior citizens who garden on a regular basis as well as a few Legacy clients who suffer from anxiety and other disorders.
The site for Phase One of the project is on the land donated for use by one of the founders of the Center. Living Legacy Center’s mission is to Build Bridges, Build Relationships and Build Community. The Oasis Garden project is just one of the projects the Center is using to bring the Community together. The plan is to begin Super Saturdays where we will be combining gardening along with educational seminars on various topics that impact our community. The seminars will include fraud prevention, health and wellness and long-term care benefit planning. The garden’s primary purpose is therapeutic in nature. The bounty from the harvest will be shared with those in need. This is a project in its infancy stage at this time.
