A vacant lot on Stoddart Avenue provides a place to grow flowers, fruits and vegetables of the gardener's own choice. (The garden is 4 blocks west of Alum Creek Drive/Bexley and 1/4 block north of E. Main St.). All gardeners are encouraged to donate a portion of their produce to a local food pantry. (See 7/7/11 Post: Plant a Row to Feed the Hungry By Donating Garden Produce to Food Pantries). To participate, contact the Garden Manager. Also see the FAQ at the bottom of this site.

Now Accepting Gardeners
We are now accepting applications/registrations for the 2010 gardening season. If you would like a garden plot to grow your own fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs, WE’D LIKE YOU TO JOIN US.There is no charge to participate. You will, however, have to plant your own seeds, sometimes supply your own water and fertilizer, pull your own weeds, and harvest your own produce. (We have several rain barrels which you can use until they run dry). You will also need to volunteer some time to care for the Garden.
We encourage all gardeners to donate a portion of their produce to a local food pantry – like the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, the Lutheran Social Services Food Pantry on Champion Avenue or Faith Mission Homeless Shelter.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Garden Manager at 231-8571 or GardenMgr@gmail.com.
Garden plots will be assigned space permitting on a first-come-first serve basis – with preference given to gardeners from the prior season who also participated in two work days in April and November. The application deadline is April 5, 2010, and we need volunteers on April 10 & 11, 2010. If we run out of plots, we will create a wait list with preference given to people who volunteer on April 10, 2010.
Groups and clubs are welcome to share a plot.
Even if you do not want to garden with us this year, please don’t be a stranger. Stop by and say hello when you see us sweating, bending and grunting down the street. Misery loves company.
