You can grow your own food. We can help.

UALC Community Garden

We grow produce for our neighbors, about 12,000 Lbs. a year. That’s great during the growing season, but there are months when we can’t harvest. And even during the growing season, some don’t know how to cook our produce. We want to fill those gaps by teaching people how to cook and preserve our crops. Let me explain.

We serve two distinct groups of people (in addition to our primary mission of supplying food pantries). Those are Hilliard, Ohio, families whose children receive free/reduced price lunches and immigrants who participate in English as second language classes (ESL) in Hilliard. This is who we will teach. Our garden is on the Hilliard campus of Upper Arlington Lutheran Church and there is a commercial kitchen there. We'll use some of our harvest for classes in that kitchen. The classes will be hands on, with participants working with the harvest and taking home what’s cooked/preserved—as well as the skills to do it on their own.

We harvest at times when classes can’t be held, so we'll need refrigeration to keep crops fresh until class are held. We’ll need a robust refrigerator because we’ll need a lot of vegetables for each class. We'd also use that refigerator to support our mission of supplying food pantries.
