The future of Norman depends on us. Let's work together to address our flooding and water quality challenges.
Established nearly 130 years ago, Norman is now the third-largest city in Oklahoma and continues to grow. It’s a great place to live, work and raise a family, but two issues threaten our future: flooding and poor water quality.
Now is the time to improve our stormwater system to reduce flooding, protect clean water and strengthen our local economy.
“A quote of some sort would go here.”
— NADIA Shabazz, FOUNDER
The Norman Stormwater Citizen Committee will host two open houses in June to share information about the stormwater proposal, answer questions and gather feedback from residents.
Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
