The Benson Community Garden was founded in 2011. The space includes 36 plots. In 2012, the organization started the “Neighbor Garden” which features nearly 400 square feet of vegetables for area residents.
An “Earth Stage” was built to provide a venue for live music, cooking demonstrations and more.

The Benson Community Garden is gearing up for the third annual "Benson Oktoberfest." Organizers are looking for local bands and businesses to contribute to this year's celebration.
The event is set for Saturday, September 14th starting at 5 p.m.
“We are booking local musicians and bands to entertain the attendees,” said Kurt Goetzinger, garden founder. “For our silent auction, we are
seeking local businesses to donate items and gift certificates.”
Funds raised from the Oktoberfest event will support outreach and programming at the garden.
Admission is $10. That covers live music, bratwurst, side dishes, a silent auction and more. Beer and refreshments will be available in an enclosed tent. All ages are welcome, but anyone under 21 must be accompanied by a parent.
