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.
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.
