Does anyone know of any community gardens in eastern Hamilton County? I would like to rent a small plot to try to grow a few veggies this spring/summer. The only one I have been able to locate is in Blue Ash, and that appears to be restricted to residents only. I thought some of you knowledgeable folk might be aware of something. Thanks for any assistance.

Madisonville had one last summer. Call the Civic Garden Center; they might have some ideas.

Hmm.. I live in Lebanon on an acre, and have always wanted to put in a garden....

maybe we could work out a labor exchange.....


I don't know of any community gardens, but check with some of the nurseries, they usually have a good idea of what's going on. Marvin's Gardens (Lebanon, off of 42) is fairly into organic, and does a lot with food gathering, and co-op deliveries of vegetables, so they might have some ideas of community gardens (even outside of Warren County, where I'm at).

Also try Hamilton County parks department. I would (think?) that any community gardens that are on public parks land would be regulated through them...


Also there was a story very recently about have a shared/community garden where the vegetables were donated to the local food pantry so that people who rely on the pantry (in Cincinnati/Hamilton County) could have fresh vegetables. I don't remember where I saw this (literally it was in the last week!!!) .. but while their shared garden has a specific purpose, they might know of other garden space available.

I think that most places you have to live in the community, maybe? Mariemont has community gardens and I think Montgomery.

Pleasant Ridge Montessori has a community garden. That isn't too far from you. Civic garden center will lead you in the right direction

Columbia Tusculum does one, as does Evanston. The one in C-T is right on Columbia Pkwy as you head east past Stanley. You can see the one in Evanston from I-71 S near the Red Cross HQ.

I have seen one near the Red Cross building near I-71 in Evanston. You may want to check with the Civic Garden Center. The Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati - Building Community through Gardening
