Organization: Civic Garden Center

Establishing Hub Gardens is a new pilot program among the Civic Garden Center’s network of 65 Community Gardens. A Hub Garden is a Community Garden that has already exhibited effective leadership in its targeted community and that the Civic Garden Center will further support with additional in place programing. Just like the hub in a wheel, the Hub Garden will engage with the surrounding community and other Community Gardens that are in close proximity. This will leverage the resources of the Civic Garden Center to greater benefit all of the Community Gardens in its network. The organization of the Hub Garden will allow for a decentralization of the education that the Civic Garden Center offers.

The OTR People’s Garden will be one of three Hub Gardens created in this pilot phase. As will the West End Community Garden and The Amberley Green Community Garden. The pilot program will consist of adding two monthly classes at each Hub Garden through the growing season, one each on the topic of gardening and healthy cooking. These classes will be specific for each space where they are held. The goal will be to allow gardeners to get the most from what they are growing for the entire season and instruct on the breadth of uses for grown produce. The classes will be free and open to anyone interested. No need to be a gardener to learn about food!

This is truly an effort to spread the knowledge and increase awareness and demand. As the garden education becomes established, plans will involve expanding educational opportunities to include a broad range of environmental topics. Ideally these would be taught by educators from the communities themselves. The goal is to create a model that can be replicated in our area and elsewhere. Environmental Education for Everyone starts right now! Come learn at a Hub Garden near you!
