Spring Grove Village Community Garden

The Spring Grove Village Community Garden is an important resource to the neighborhood, with over 20 gardeners growing wide variety of garden crops, from March through October every year. The garden was initiated in 1999, with help from the Civic Garden Center, and is now overseen by Mrs. Nannie Oliver, in cooperation with the Spring Grove Village Community Council. Gardeners share the fruits of their labor with neighbors, local churches, and at monthly community council meetings.


Community and volunteer groups, including Crossroads Church, The Civic Garden Center, Marathon Biodiesel, Xavier, UC, and Homeadow Song Farm, have helped make our garden what it is today by countless hours of weeding, clearing brush, installing fencing, spreading compost and woodchips, and building over 35 raised garden beds!

Spring Grove Village is perhaps Cincinnati’s best-kept secret. One of the Queen City’s most harmonious neighborhoods, it features a diverse populace and is one of Cincinnati’s safest communities. It is a close-knit and conscientious community with a strong commitment to gardening, environmental issues and community engagement through its community council, Village Works program and Development Corporation.
