Oasis was created and maintained in the New Smyrna Beach High School courtyard by the students from the art, agriculture, geography and special needs departments. The installation set up the garden as social space and meditative space and was highly productive for two growing seasons. Over 250 students and faculty participated in the project. This project was a part of the Atlantic Center for the Arts' Community Artist in Residence Program. Started in fall of 2012, we were able to continue to develop the site through mid-2013.
