Description

The Stoddart Avenue Community Garden provides inexpensive plots for Central Ohio gardeners to grow their own fresh food and flowers.  To date, we’ve donated over 3600 pounds of fresh produce to area pantries and Faith Mission.  We’ll be getting ready for our 9th growing season and have lots of work to do!  Here’s just a few of the things we need to complete:      

  • spreading a ton (literally) of wood chips with wheelbarrows, rakes and shovels along our paths and along the fence line;
  • topping off the kids’ raised beds with potting soil;
  • measuring and marking off our plots;
  • mowing our lawn;
  • rebuilding a compost bin;
  • turning our compost;
  • restocking our Free Little Library (which can always use some more books);
  • hanging our sign;
  • planting grape vines along our new trellis gate;
  • picking up the litter which has blown onto our lot over the winter and in our neighborhood;
  • hooking up our rain cisterns;  and,
  • if there is time, may start planting Spring crops (like lettuce and kale) in our food pantry and neighbor plots. 
Requirements
Please wear grubby and weather-appropriate clothes and no open-toed shoes. If you have your own tools and gardening gloves, please bring them, but we have extra for you to borrow.
PerksWe can send you home with free seeds to grow your own basil and marigolds. You will also work so hard that you will sleep like a baby that night. We promise.
Parking DetailsStreet Parking is available. We are on the #2 COTA bus line, too.
