St. John's Community Garden

This is our 2nd season of gardening and we are looking for your help! Last year we were able to grow an abundance of fresh vegetables that were distributed to our Harrison community including: Bountiful Hearts Meals, Harrison and Crosby Senior Centers, as well as deliveries to local families in need. We all know there is nothing better than fresh picked produce! How can you help?

  • If you are interested in helping with gardening call Sarah Heffron (513)364-4042
  • If you are interested in contributing, please send any donations to the parish office at:

St. John’s Community Garden

509 Harrison Ave. Harrison, OH 45030 

(Funds will be used for soil, plants & tools)

Checks should be made out to St. John the Baptist

(with SJB Community Garden in the memo line)

 *Please include a note stating that this is for the SJB Community Garden


Our garden was SO bountiful last year, and those who received the harvest were so appreciative. Not only is the produce we grow so nourishing and beneficial to our health, but studies report a wide range of health outcomes to the actual act of gardening, such as reductions in depression, anxiety, and body mass index, as well as increases in life satisfaction, quality of life, and sense of community. Because gardening is a beneficial health intervention, it is encouraged people participate in regular exercise in gardens. So, what are you waiting for? We are almost ready to begin planting! Don’t forget to take a peek on the north side outside of our church to see how the garden is coming along and don’t hesitate to join us, it’s our St. John’s garden!
