Columbus Gives Back loves community gardens! And we are excited to volunteer with you at the Charles Madison Nabrit Memorial Garden to help produce healthy and educational gardening for students and the community in one of our east-side neighborhoods!
Where: Behind the Church of Christ of the Apostolic Faith. 1200 Brentnell Ave. Columbus, OH 43219
When: Sunday, April 28th, 2018 (10am – 1pm)
Event Leaders: firstname.lastname@example.org
What to Bring: Please wear clothing you do not mind getting down and dirty in!
About the garden: Opened in 2014 in the midst of an urban food desert, CMNMG@CCAF is a 3,850 square foot, organic, biodiverse, self-sustaining space behind a church housing an historic, 105+ year-old, predominantly black congregation, descendents of the African diaspora to the Americas.
Their mission is to:
(1) increase affordable access to organic produce;
(2) increase awareness of the spiritual and cultural connections to gardening within black and brown communities;
(3) increase children’s exposure to functional STEM studies; and
(4) increase economic self-sufficiency and sustainability in the garden, in our homes and in our community.
#SocialTwist: After the event, we encourage you to join us for food or drinks and have fun with other cool volunteers like you!
