Ovid Community Garden
For pictures of Ovid Community Garden, see slide show below.
This large community garden is within walking distance from the Village of Ovid, near the water tower off County Rd 139.
It has an "Outdoor Classroom" attended by South Seneca students, a large perennial flower garden, lovely murals, access to water, a secure fence, and many raised beds. A resident will reserve a bed, tend it on their own schedule, and then harvest the produce they grow in it. These popular beds are usually reserved in the late Summer or Fall, but sometimes there are still a couple of beds available the following Spring. If you're interested in reserving one, please contact STEPS at (315) 651-9919 or <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Some of the Ovid Community Garden's ground rules include:
Gardening is Healthy & Fun
Through community gardening, you can stay physically active, put hands in the earth, connect with nature, build community ties, and increase the production of nutritious, fresh produce for your family and friends. Time spent outdoors improves mental health too. Get some sunlight and fresh air!
Beyond all the benefits of gardening, we know many of you truly rely on food that you grow. With the increase in food prices, gardening is becoming an essential skill.
With gratitude for all you do to make the community a better place.
