Community Garden at The University Church in the news!

.

Our Community Garden made the news on March 6, 2012 when the news media noticed that we were on the agenda at an upcoming meeting of the City Council in Toledo for consideration of our application for a “special use permit” to build a greenhouse on the church property.

.

Our zoning is such that we needed to request special permission for such a project before we can apply for a building permit. This caught the attention of the media who came and spoke with our three AmeriCorps VISTAs (Volunteers In Service To America), Allie Denham, Peter Meinecke, and Zachary Hillyer, about the project.
.
A video about our Community Garden Project was aired on Fox Toledo on March 6th.
.
The good news is that the Council Meeting has already happened and our application was approved. The next step is to present to the Zoning Commission next month and we’ll keep you posted on the outcome.
