Community Garden Development Training (CGDT)
The community garden program began in 1980. Since then community gardening has blossomed all across greater Cincinnati. There are dozens of these magnificent green and growing areas throughout the city.
CGDT provides community residents with technical assistance, leadership training, horticulture education and start-up materials. This training ultimately helps to carry out the mission of the Civic Garden Center, extending the impact to a broad number of people in Cincinnati. This class is also a great resource for folks interested in becoming involved in an existing community garden or vegetable gardening at home. These classes are free of charge! Many classes are hands-on workshops. CGDT is sponsored in part by the Meshewa Farm Foundation.
The CGC’s Community Garden Development Training program is a free, 12-class series that educates community residents on how to successfully organize, plan, build and sustain their own community gardens.
Community Garden plots are rented on a yearly basis and typically cost anywhere from $5-$20 per year.
