Tuesday April 10th was the first planting day for the 2018 OSU Extension, Lucas County Make Your Garden Grow sharing garden. The large planters, previously used for annual flowers, are located outside One Government Center on Jackson Street in downtown Toledo. The OSU Extension, Lucas County team will plant, harvest, and share fresh food and garden updates about the different vegetables, flowers and herbs that will be growing there this spring, summer and fall. Visit the garden when you’re in downtown Toledo, use this webpage for additional updates and details about the crops and follow us on Facebook at Lucas County Extension for photos and updates.

Did you know? SNAP participants can #makeyourgardengrow by using their EBT card to purchase seeds and plants. Seeds and plants used in gardens to produce food for human consumption are eligible foods. Visit SNAP Gardens for details.
