Scotts Miracle-Gro Company Community Garden Campus
Visit the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company Community Garden Campus for beauty and inspiration. Designed as a living classroom and idea center, this four-acre garden provides creative resources for anyone interested in gardening and edible landscapes. Explore the culinary, herb and fragrance gardens, apiary, rose pavilion, berry house, and 40 community garden plots. Refresh your connection to nature solo or bring a delicious picnic to share with friends.
The American Electric Power Education Pavilion is located on the campus. Here you can put your inspiration to use during a cooking class in the demonstration kitchen or the Live Fire Kitchen.
Community Garden Plot Rental ProgramCommunity Gardens offer a variety of benefits to their communities. They improve access to fresh food and serve as a space for neighbors to connect and reflect on nature's beauty. Participants rent plots to be a part of a functional community garden. This garden also serves as a model for participants in the Conservatory's Growing to Green program.
Please refrain from picking or eating produce grown in the Community Garden. A Free Little Farmstand is available.

Free Little FarmstandTake some produce, give some produce!
Growing an edible garden can often mean growing a surplus of a given item. The Free Little Farmstand was created as a way to swap and share what we grow in our gardens with each other! The stand provides free produce grown from the Teen Corps Garden, Community Garden Campus and Community Garden plot holders. Our neighbors and community members are welcome to enjoy the delicious and nutritious bounty!
The Free Little Farmstand is located in the Community Garden Campus at the Conservatory and, like the rest of the Community Garden, is always free to the public.
An enormous thank you is owed to Conservatory volunteers for constructing and contributing to the Farmstand.
Pollinator Garden The Pollinator Garden contains both perennials and annuals planted so that something is in bloom throughout the season for our friendly pollinators that you will see throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons.
ApiaryIn the Community Garden Campus next to the Pollinators Garden contains living, active beehives to support the busy and critical role of bees in the life-cycle of flowering plants. The Apiary is used to promote the conservation of North American native bees, which are currently threatened by foreign pests and diseases.
