Franklinton Farms

Started in 2007 as a lone community garden on a small vacant lot, Franklinton Farms has since developed into a thriving network of gardens and food production sites scattered throughout the neighborhood’s urban landscape.

In addition to our organic food production efforts, we offer a wide range of garden-based activities, educational programs, and employment opportunities in order to empower neighbors and build a healthy community.

I enjoyed helping in the gardens and thought the time was well spent and the event was organized. It was a great weather day to do it, and I'd volunteer again!

Details:

Started in 2007 as a lone community garden on a small vacant lot, Franklinton Farms has since developed into a thriving network of gardens and food production sites scattered throughout the neighborhood’s urban landscape. Growing food is the cornerstone of their efforts to improve the neighborhood. Franklinton Farms has grown and donated thousands of pounds of fresh food to local food pantries.
 
Join Besa and Franklinton Farms to help increase access to local produce in our community. Besa volunteers will be assisting with general stewardship and maintenance of the farm. Task may include weeding, raking, planting, harvesting, and preparing the garden beds. Volunteers may also work indoors, either tending plants in our high tunnels or assisting with property maintenance, tool organization, and other various tasks. Supplies, including tools and gardening gloves, will be provided.
 

Franklinton Farms will provide gloves and also practice social distancing. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are highly encouraged to bring their own mask or face covering, Franklinton Farms will not be providing any. 

 

While Ohio slowly reopens, officials still strongly recommend that people remain at home when possible and limit gathering sizes. Volunteers, however, continue to be needed now more than ever. That means our critical-need projects, as well as those of our partner agencies, are still happening. And healthy and willing volunteers are needed.
