Established in 2011, the Westwood Community Gardens is a place that is inclusive and will allow all people, regardless of age or ability, to share in the joy of gardening. The Gardens will give back to the community by providing education to Westwood residents about growing their own flowers and produce. Most importantly, the Westwood Community Gardens will be a beautiful space that all neighbors can feel proud of and enjoy.Volunteers from the Garden’s Core Team plan the development and work projects. All gardeners commit to sixteen hours of work at the garden per year, helping with improvements, weeding, promotion, and other activities. Developed and supported by the Westwood Civic Association, the garden is an initiative to enhance the quality of life in Westwood, in addition to the aims of providing green space and fresh produce in the neighborhood. Funded initially by the City of Cincinnati Urban Agriculture Program* with additional resources from the Kiwanis Club, Civic Garden Center and the support of a Safe and Clean grant from Keep Cincinnati Beautiful the garden also collects revenue by affordable plot rental fees from its gardeners and welcomes donations.
