Membership offerings expanded for 2016 CSA program
The Hoover YMCA Learning Garden is a one-acre organic farm located at the Hoover YMCA in Lockbourne, Ohio. In 2013, we started a CSA program that provided fresh produce to area families, food pantries and local non-profits serving families in need.
The Learning Garden is also a vital part of the YMCA’s Summer Camp program. Summer Campers spend two to three hours per week in the garden learning about growing healthy foods and assisting in all aspects of food production from “seed to harvest”.
