UALC Community Garden at Mill Run

Share your time in the garden. 

Supplying Fresh Produce to Hungry Families

Our crops feed families in Hilliard, many of whom are involved in the ESL Program. Since we started the Community Garden, we have donated over 130,000 pounds of fresh produce to central Ohio families. God has blessed our garden and efforts abundantly. We show God's generosity by giving away more than 95% of what we grow.

Helping Hands are Needed

You can support the garden:
  • Volunteer: No need to RSVP, just show up. We need help planting, harvesting, weeding, watering, composting and delivering from early spring-late fall. In spring, join a work party on Saturdays, 9:00 am-12:00 pm. Contact Todd Marti,, to be added to the email list for weekly updates and cancellations. All ages are welcome and no gardening experience is necessary. Arrive when you can and stay as long as you'd like.
  • Bible Breaks: We take time out of our work to study the Word, and share prayer requests. Everyone is invited to join in.
  • Pray: Ask God to help us increase the quality and quantity of his crops, and to help us do it ways that best show his love.

Planting and Harvesting

Planting begins in early spring and work ends in late November. Get your hands in the dirt planting and harvesting all kinds of vegetables. We plant beets, tomatoes, lettuce, collard greens, potatoes, squash, cucumbers and more. It's all about community and getting everyone involved from the kids to the grandparents. We have volunteers from all over the city, not only from the UALC campuses, but from other local churches, from the Middle East, South America, India, East Asia and more. Come and join the fun. Everyone is also welcome to stop by and enjoy God's creation. Thanks to many people who donate their time, talents and treasures to the garden.
