Central State University Extension (CSU-E) is offering a free program, the Black Heritage Community Garden Project, at the Central State Seed-to-Bloom Botanical and Community Garden, located at the intersection of U.S. 42 E and Wilberforce-Switch Road, across from the main University entrance.
The program will be offered from May 18 through September 14. The following are the dates and themes of the Black Heritage Community Garden Project:
- 6-8 p.m. May 18 — Warm Weather Crop Planting
- 6-8 p.m. June 15 — Garden Weeds, Pests & Diseases
- 6-8 p.m. July 20 — Early Harvest
- 4:30-6:30 p.m. Aug. 24 — Extending the Season with Fall Crops/Mid-season Harvest

The Black Heritage Community Garden Project will require monitoring and tending to the new variety of crops. Join us at one or more sessions and discover how well they perform. Bring questions, water, and sun protection, and plan to get a little soil beneath your nails as we tend to these new crops.
For reservations or more information, contact CSU-E Agriculture/Natural Resources Associate Clare Thorn at email@example.com or 937.376.6627.
