Licking County Master Gardener Volunteers are delighted to share the news of our newly created Pantry Garden. After the removal of overgrown shrubs and the installing of water lines and fencing, the class of 2019 and members donned their garden gloves to make walkways and garden rows within a 36’ x 70’ zone. Techniques for the Pantry Garden were replicated as outlined in the book “Raised Row Gardening,” written by local authors Jim and Mary Competti. With the help of the Grow Ohio grant, our Pantry Garden gleaned an impressive 2,650 pounds of vegetables the very first year.

Licking County Master Gardener Volunteers have created an awe-inspiring Learning Garden located behind the Extension Office. Every year on the 3rd Saturday in July, they hold an Open House event in the gardens adorn with garden flags, fairy gardens, colorful umbrellas, music, free food and activities for young visitors. This past year’s theme was “Something to Crow About.” Garden Chairs were to create a scarecrow for each of their gardens.
