Community Gardens

North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC) supports local foods in the North End, which is why we launched the North End Local Foods Initiative (NELFI). As a part of NECIC's local food work, we support community gardens across Richland County, but most importantly, in the North End.

Community Gardener Madonna Brock, center, teaches a class at the Atherton Avenue Community Garden in the North End.

NECIC serves as a resource hub for area community gardens, offering needed materials such as seeds, plants, buckets, and even grants to help establish or increase the sustainability of area community gardens.

If you are interested in volunteering at a community garden in your neighborhood, would like to donate items to support the gardens, or would like more information, give us a call at 419-525-3101.
