Community Garden Sites

Community gardens have on many different looks and styles. For us, a community garden site is where the produce being grown benefits the community somehow. From a church garden with no individualized plots to a series of raised planting boxes at a senior center. Stark county is home to many different community gardens, including a few of our own.

Edible Park Oasis

In 2014 we were asked to assist Deli Ohio with the transformation of “the worst parking lot in Canton” into an Edible Park space. A true community event, we helped create this unique first-of-its-kind public park on private property where people have access to fresh produce and fruit all summer long.

Urban Teaching Farm

The Urban Teaching Farm is a different sort of community garden in that community members and volunteers help farm it and the produce grown is distributed through the Veggie Mobile to other community groups. Excess produce is freely distributed to adjacent neighbors and volunteers. The chickens and quail are tended to by a neighbor in exchange for their eggs and a few neighbors have their own plots inside the farm itself where they grown produce.

Turtle Park

The Food Production and job skills training farm is another variant on a community garden space. Farmed by volunteers and staff, produce is distributed through the Veggie Mobile and given to volunteers. At times, the farm is opened up to the public and nearby neighbors can “shop” and pick a basket of produce for themselves.
