Community Garden Project
  • We know that learning in the classroom is just the beginning, and we want to give our students the opportunity to create positive social change going forward.  So we are proud to be partners in the Lincoln Park Elementary Community Garden project.


    Capital is partnering with Columbus City Schools, Barack Community Recreation Center, Whole Foods Market, Hazel's House of Hope, and Community Development for All People to support a community garden, cooking and nutrition program benefiting the Lincoln Park community.The garden provides fresh produce to families of Lincoln Park Elementary students and the surrounding community who are in need.

    Lincoln Park Elementary is managing the project, and Capital students, faculty and staff have volunteered to work in the garden throughout the growing season, giving us another opportunity to give back to the community.
