Massillon Community Garden Coalition
The Massillon Community Garden Coalition helps support 5 community gardens where people can grow vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers for personal use or to donate. The gardens range in size, style and function. Some of the gardens offer individual plots while others have shared plots. Some of them supply fresh food for meal kitchens and local food pantries while others are educational and involve children and/or mentor people of all abilities. Each garden is operated and maintained by committed volunteers and a Master Gardener through the OSU Extension Office. Some gardens also offer additional programming. They are all places that beautify neighborhoods, inspire community development, foster good neighborhood relationships and community pride. If you are interested in participating in one of our exisiting sites or starting one of your won, contact Lisa Benton at 330-830-1728.
