The Godman Guild

This is the fabulous organization my students and I work with. Trish and Jessica are our fabulous site mentors. The Godman Guild originally started as a settlement house with huge gardens and these ladies are bringing the organization back to its roots through their own garden and helping to start and support other gardens in the area. Get involved with community gardening through them!

We are lucky to have our ongoing partnership with The Graham School! Our garden would not have the success without the students involvement.
There are many ways to be involved with The Weinland Park Community Garden: Sign up for your own garden plot, work on communal areas as a trade for produce, donate time/skills/or goods. We're located behind Godman Guild at 303 E.6th St., Cols, Oh., 43201. Anyone interested can call Trish at 294-5476, ext.161. I'd be happy to answer any questions or give a tour. We are also taking names and contact information from any teen ages 14-18 in the Columbus Area, who is interested in working in our Summer Teen Employment Program, with a variety of jobs, paying stipends of $7 an hour/25 hours per week---you can call 294-5476 ext.144 and ask to put on our wait list--enrollments begin April 14th.
We have a great season of gardening and public art ahead of us! I can't wait!
