Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati
|The Civic Garden Center (CGC) is a non-profit horticultural resource. Founded in 1942, the CGC is the only organization of its kind in our region. We host classes, a horticultural library, several gardens for visitors to enjoy free of charge, the Green Learning Station and an outdoor compost classroom; the building and grounds are available for event and meeting rental. CGC has supported the development and continued success of over 50 community and children’s gardens throughout the city. Our outreach efforts include the Community Gardens, Youth Education and School Gardens programs. The CGC offers these programs at no cost to participants, thanks to the generosity of our donors, private and government grants and corporate sponsorships.
