The Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati
WHO WE ARE
We are a regionally recognized nonprofit model that has been teaching people how to grow food and care for the environment since 1942. Founded during the Victory Gardens movement and situated on the former estate of philanthropist Cornelius J. Hauck, we are Cincinnati’s go-to resource for all things gardening, sustainability and horticulture.
We host classes and events, two annual plant sales, field trips, volunteer workdays, and more. We also support a large network of community and school gardens throughout Cincinnati, restore school-adjacent local forests through our Treeforestation program, host the Green Teens Challenge for high school students and have recently begun a native plant propagation program. Our Hauck Botanic Garden grounds--a public park--are free and open to all. Our facilities, including the Green Learning Station, available for event and meeting rental.
