What region or area do you provide services in?
We provide services the residents of Franklinton and we provide donations of fresh food to Central Ohio food pantries.
How and when did the organization get started?
In 2007, the first community garden was built in Franklinton on a small vacant lot. Since then, it has become a large network of gardens and food production sites scattered throughout the urban landscape of Franklinton. Over the years, Franklinton Farms has added neighborhood events, educational programs, and employment opportunities that empower neighbors to build a healthy community.
How many employees do you have?
We have a small Board of Directors and a small group of interns.
