We have a variety of initiatives to provide opportunities for growth and learning in our community garden. We are always expanding our programming to meet community needs, so if you have ideas or would like to get involved, please contact our Garden Coordinator, Rosa Gadsden at email@example.com.
Plant-a-Row for the Hungry (PAR) is a two-pronged community food campaign run by OCS. First, it encourages farms, gardens, organizations and individuals who already have access to gardening information, skills, knowledge, equipment and time to plant and extra row in their garden designated for OCS.
Sprouts is a summer gardening program for children. All aspects of gardening are introduced, and games and snacks are provided. We are now planning for summer 2018.
Volunteering in the Garden
There are always opportunities to volunteer in the garden. Whether you are an individual or organization, we have a place for you!
Oberlin College Environmental sciences
OCS is fortunate to work with students from the Environmental Sciences Department at Oberlin College. With experience in gardening techniques from around the world, they have provided expertise on garden planning, planting strategy, composting, and many other initiatives. The students have projects for their classwork and use our site for implementation. They contribute countless volunteer hours in the garden.
