Urban Greens has expanded by three sites for the 2022 season! Our sites now include Restoration Park, Brighton Grows, Zanesville Community High School, with the addition of Imlay’s Zanesville Community Garden, Marshall Greens, and Philo High School. We have partnered with the South Zanesville Food Pantry to grow food to the specific wants and needs of those who utilize this pantry. We will be providing educational programming throughout the spring and summer on how to prepare the produce they are receiving, as well as information on how to start personal gardens. We have gathered an amazing group of volunteers with a variety of skills who are eager to participate in the success of the community gardens this season! But more volunteers are welcome!
