Today, The Columbus Foundation and a number of partners are supporting Earth Day by providing mulch, soil, and others supplies to Columbus and Franklin County community gardens. In partnership with Scotts Miracle-Gro, Franklin Park Conservatory, City Of Columbus, and others, 47 local gardens will flourish and grow to provide fresh food and connect our neighbors! 

Recognizing the many benefits of community gardens, the City of Columbus and Franklin County have partnered with The Columbus Foundation to support existing gardens and encourage the creation of new ones. A community garden is any piece of land gardened by a group of people for the betterment of the community. It can be urban, suburban, or rural.

This is the fifteenth year for the grant program, which has benefitted more than 300 community gardens.
