You can grow your own food. We can help.

Four Seasons City Farm

 Four Seasons City Far, (4SCF) raises organic fruits, vegetables and flowers on inner-city lots, promotes healthy living, access to locally grown foods and improved economic development for residents in the economically distressed Near East Side of Columbus. Started in 2004 at Old First Presbyterian Church, FSCF now has 7 established neighborhood gardens on 12 city lots, of which 5 are included here. Garden activities involve neighbors and volunteers, from preparation and planting to harvesting and marketing with seasonal garden festivals. Produce is equally shared with participants, donated to local food pantries, and sold to promote sustainability. Neighborhood youth and volunteers from other organizations take part. Key partners include Central Community House, AmeriCorps City Year, Directions for Youth and Families, Near East Area Commission, South of Main Block Watch, Columbus Health Department, Salvation Army. We regularly donate several hundred pounds of fresh produce to St. John’s community kitchen and sell vegetables, herbs and flowers at a new neighborhood cooperative market, Columbus Health Department farm market, and local restaurants.
