Chickasaw Community Gardens

The Chickasaw Community Gardens were created in March 2002 to fulfill their purpose of employing and training Chickasaw youth and adults. The program started very small with a single-bay greenhouse. Thalia Miller, the Director of the Chickasaw Nation Horiculture Department and overseer of the Community Gardens, has been able to grow and expand the program. They now have a dual-bay greenhouse, a raised garden and a traditional garden. The department now staffs 10 full-time adults, 6 youth workers year-round and 12 summer youth workers. Beyond these employment opportunities, the staff is able to participate in enrichment programs including etiquette classes, cultural activities, arts and crafts and guest speaking.

This excellent staff is able to produce beautiful cut flowers, fresh vegetables and hanging baskets to name a few of their products. All of these and more are available for sale at the greenhouses.
