The CommUnity Garden is a non-profit organization that will provide space for local residents to grow fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers for themselves and for others.  It will serve as a place where all can appreciate the beauty, form and colors of nature.  

With a team of passionate volunteers, we will be transforming a 1,000 square foot area that is currently an overgrown hillside in Akron/Green, Ohio.   Wildflowers, pollination bees, composting areas and meditation spaces will be key features. 

Our vision is that the garden will encourage local residents of all ages to engage with fellow gardeners, learn new skills, and share a love of nature. 

Gardening is known a therapeutic activity and has the many of the same benefits of meditation. Studies show that gardening promotes physical and mental health through relaxation.  By creating this space where we can reconnect with nature, we can provide another means to nourish our mind, body and spirit. 

Our goal is raise $20,000 to begin construction by April 18th so we are able to have a fully functioning garden by the end of spring.

The money will be used to for site excavation, construction of fourteen garden spaces and a retaining wall, as well as the purchase of foundational plantings and gardening supplies.

Thank you for your contributions!
