emerson avenue community garden

Since 2011, we have been working to turn what was a derelict piece of property into a thriving green space to be shared by all for the betterment of the community.

Our Mission

The Emerson Avenue Community Garden Club, Inc. is a 501.c.3 non-profit organiza­tion run entirely by volunteers working to develop a one acre portion of the campus of Orville Wright Middle School into a sustainable, organic food garden and green space shared by the school and the public at large for the purposes of education and commu­nity building.
