Hello,

I am a new

I recently started working for the Ohio State
> University (I just came from Santa Cruz, CA), at an agricultural research
> campus that the university has in Wooster, Ohio. It is a small campus in a
> small town, located at around 80 miles northeast of Columbus.

Anyway,
> besides my work, I like to garden and to my surprise there are no community

Most of these

> some members of the families (often with one or several of them not speaking
> English ) are kind of stuck during the day in those apartments (not fun), and
> would definitely benefit and/or enjoy having access to community gardens.

I sent a campus wide email regarding the possibility of having

Anyway, the
