We have a large 1/2 acre site, at 2163 Harrison Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio, in the suburb of Westwood. The site used to be a large apartment complex that was condemned and demolished by the City of Cincinnati in 2006. It took about two years to clean-up the site, and then 2-years to apply for the Land Use Agreement to convert the empty lot into a Community Gardens. We currently have approximately 12 persons who serve on the Community Gardens CORE TEAM, for the planning, development and building of the Community Gardens. We are starting from the ground up, and starting from scratch. During the Spring and Summer of 2011, we will be grading the site, fencing-in the site, hauling in topsoil, building a composting area, building a tool-shed, building rain-collection barrels, and basically getting the site all prepared for Spring 2012. In the Spring of 2012, we will be building raised-beds, and finally planting several areas in the Garden! We are excited to take this vacant piece of property and turn it into a vibrant, green and growing community garden!
One tool-shed. Future plans call for a gazebo in the center and a greenhouse.
rain water collection barrels, large composting area, load dumping/ staging area, running water, lots of room for gardening, flower beds, fruit trees and walking paths
