Community gardens promote healthy, active lifestyles, and create new, productive re-uses of underutilized land. Community gardens also beautify our community while simultaneously providing access to fresh, local, nutritious foods.
Franklin County is proud to offer two gardens - Gantz Road, southwest of downtown, and Mound Street located in the heart of downtown Columbus. Here gardeners can grow their own fruits and vegetables, mingle with and learn from other gardeners, and be a part of a growing national movement toward making healthy and organically grown food available for all. For more information on these great gardens, following the links below.
Because the Franklin County Gantz Road Community Garden is being relocated on the property, opening of the garden will be delayed. Persons who had plots in 2012 will receive first notification when applications will be accepted.
More information about the Franklin County Community Gardens can be found by emailing CommunityGarden@FranklinCountyOhio.gov or calling 614/525-4169.
