"About the Garden: The Charles Madison Nabrit Memorial Garden

Named 2015 Community Garden of the Year and selected as one of 12 Hub Gardens in Central Ohio by Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, CMNMG@CCAF was created as a living legacy to Charles Madison Nabrit’s commitment to holistic health, self-­determination, education and community service.

Our 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.

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. Our hashtags speak to our spiritual and cultural heritage: #HeStartedUsinaGarden and #WeCameHeretoCultivate."
