Community Gardens

 

 

Welcome to the Community Gardens of Hancock County! As our community takes on the issue of hunger, United Way is pleased to be involved in this collaborative effort.

Community gardens benefit communities and individuals in multiple ways including encouraging health and exercise, providing opportunities for intergenerational and cross-cultural connections, reducing crime rates, neighborhood beautification, producing nutritious food, reducing family budgets, and the creation of entrepreneurial and income opportunities.

 

The Community Gardens of Hancock County began as a collaborative effort of the United Way of Hancock County, the MENTOR Initiative, The Hancock County Sustainability Coalition, The Ohio State University Extension, Master Gardener Volunteers of Hancock County, The Community Foundation and City of Findlay officials. The Community Garden of Hancock County is located at The Family Center, 1800 N. Blanchard St.
