Groveport Community Garden

The Groveport Community Garden was conceived in the summer of 2011 by a small group of residents. The garden opened in the spring of 2012 and includes fertile soil, perimeter fencing made possible by a $2,500 grant from the Columbus & Franklin County Community Grant Program), water, compost bins and sinage.  The garden is open to all persons.  The per plot fee is $10 per season.

The mission of the Groveport Community Garden is to build community and improve people’s quality of life through the following objectives: encourage self reliance by enabling participants an opportunity to grow their own nutritional fruit and vegetables; enable participants an opportunity to exercise, recreate and educate; foster community spirit through socialization; foster continual learning through sharing of ideas, gardening workshops and school involvement; enable participants to share resources (e.g., tools, gardening techniques, manpower, etc.); encourage participants to reconnect with nature and “go green”; assist those in need. The City & Committee hope that through consistent and constant promotion, education and cooperation amongst residents, businesses and local organizations, our objectives will be met.
