Community Garden

Developing community gardens in Pataskala

Mission
Our mission is to strengthen our neighborhoods by maintaining a community gardens that
provide a common ground for neighborhood members to garden together and get to know
each other. Doing this will allow the residents of Pataskala to create a healthy community
through sustainable living, outdoor education. The community garden will be developed
and maintained by the department with the help of plot renters. We are teaming up with
the Licking County Master Gardeners through the OSU Extension Program to help provide
active living resources and researched based outdoor gardening education.

Vision for a Community Gardening Program
1. Provide education for youth about gardening and the importance of sustainability
and the environment we have in Pataskala.
2. Creating a healthy community by offering access to healthy food choices and active
living resources.
Community gardens offer residents a shared green space and fresh food that will
eventually contribute to improved health, improved quality of life for all demographics and
unique experiences that will help develop life skills we as people should possess.
