The Garden For All exists to provide fresh vegetables and cut flowers to those in need in the Columbus, Gahanna and New Albany, Ohio communities who are suffering from food insecurity. We use some of our eight acres of land to grow and provide fresh and nutritious vegetables. We provide outside space for our community of volunteers to serve with others by growing and packaging fresh produce and flowers for distribution to our local food pantry partners. We host educational events for food pantry clients and community members throughout the season. Last season we hosted 225 volunteers in the gardens to help do this work. We also host a variety of community events throughout the season to grow community and engagement. As part of our mission to empower others, we also host educational “Sow and Grow” container garden workshops and provide instruction, seeds and containers for food pantry patrons to grow fresh produce at their homes. We start our 5th growing season in the spring of 2024. In 2023, we grew and donated over 8,000 lbs of organically grown produce and 400 cut flower bouquets. We have three growing areas on the grounds with permanent raised beds of 50 feet in length. We received a USDA NRCS grant to install a 30X72 high tunnel which is planned for the spring 2024. We have access to a commercial kitchen inside the church where we package and weigh the produce and arrange the cut flower bouquets. We are planning for another growing space expansion in 2024 to increase output and will begin delivering produce through the Ohio CAN program to our food pantry partners. We participate in three New Albany Ohio farmers markets during the summer and two in the winter. We sell cut flower bouquets for donations of local produce or for a monetary donation. The proceeds are used to purchase more fresh produce at the market from local farmers. All proceeds raised during these events are also donated to the local food pantries. More information can be found at www.thegardenforall.org or follow us online @thegardenforall. The Garden For All is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Shares of Mid Ohio. All things grown are donated to local food pantries to fight hunger and grow community.
