MGVs Connect With Community Garden Organization

Published on

Last week, Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) Interns from Lucas County held their weekly class at the Robert Anderson Urban Agriculture Center in Toledo, Ohio.  The Center is home to Toledo GROWs - Gardens Revitalize Our World, the community garden outreach of the Toledo Botanical Garden.  In addition to spending time in the classroom, MGVs also were able to tour the Center that included seeing the farm stand, greenhouses, bee hives, chickens, and outdoor growing areas.

MGVs enjoy the tour and were excited to learn how they can be part of the Center's efforts by being a garden mentor a one of over hundred community gardens across the county; seeding, growing and distributing plants to community gardeners; or working in the demostration gardens that produce food for families in the neighborhood.
