Otterbein’s Community Garden is a community experience with Westerville area partners. The garden is operated by an advisory council of partners along with Otterbein’s Center for Community Engagement and the majority of the produce is donated to local food pantries.
The garden is divided into plots that are cultivated by a variety of community groups, including schools, neighborhood associations, veteran's groups, senior citizen living communities, and immigrant communities. These gardeners are welcome to use gardening tools and water provided at the site. The resulting produce is donated to the food pantries to feed members our community.
The garden also serves as a Living Learning Laboratory for Otterbein students; an educational youth site for camps and “poetry in the garden” workshops; and an example of sustainable gardening practices and education for gardening clubs and senior living facilities.
The garden is located on the grounds of the Center for Equine Studies at 600 N. Spring Road.
