About Us

The Civic Garden Center is a non-profit horticultural resource dedicated to "building community through gardening, education and environmental stewardship".

The Civic Garden Center is an oasis in the city - eight beautifully landscaped acres open daily to visitors at no charge and located 2.5 miles from downtown Cincinnati. Volunteers donate their time to maintain the grounds, and they and others provide financial support to the organization that was founded in 1942. Find out more about us...

Our cornerstone programs - Neighborhood Gardens touch 23 communities with over 47 active gardens. Compost Kids and Summer Sprouts programs introduce young people to gardening.

The Civic Garden Center provides education and information to individuals, schools, organizations and businesses through its Horticulture Helpline, library, classes, hands-on workshops, tours, special events and outreach programs. Gardening is a great equalizer.

Demographic and cultural barriers are non existent because people digging, getting dirty and sharing nature's beauty look pretty much the same.
