Skilling up for Transition
Transition OKC and our partners CommonWealth Urban Farms, Closer to Earth, TLC Garden Centers, OSU-OKC and Myriad Gardens have formed a new coalition dedicated to helping urban agriculture thrive in OKC. We envision our friends and neighbors enjoying urban farms and gardens, edible landscaping, and permaculture while contributing to the health and well-being of our communities and planet.
We sponsor educational and inspirational projects and programs designed to raise public awareness of the benefits of urban ag and help OKC grow food while saving water and preserving biodiversity.
Check out our OKC Urban Ag Coalition page for more information on upcoming events like the Urban Ag Film Series at Myriad Gardens and the Urban Ag Week in September.
This year, Transition OKC celebrates five years of catalyzing resilience, sustainability and health in Oklahoma City. Since 2009, we have organized, collaborated or sponsored over 100 workshops, events, and presentations, including:
- Film screenings
- Local food networking events
- Local food chef's challenge
- Moving Planet: an event for a Top 10 State in health and sustainability
- Permablitzes and gardening workshops

We participated in events like 5210 and Better Block OKC by offering educational and inspirational giveways and installations.
We inaugurated the first Community Catalyst award, presented to outgoing Oklahoma City Planning Director Russell Claus.
We are a founding member of the Urban Agriculture Coalition, an informal coalition dedicated to helping urban farms and gardens thrive in Oklahoma City.
