NEXUS Community Garden
The NEXUS Community Garden (Norwood-Evanston-Xavier Urban Sustainability) is a 34 plot community garden shared between the three communities. It is located just west of McGrath Health and Wellness Center and east of the Cohen lot on Cleneay Avenue.
NEXUS is a unique project aimed at engaging Norwood and Evanston residents alongside Xavier University students, faculty, and staff to grow food, learn about sustainable living, and build community on common ground. From mid-March through October each year, NEXUS serves as a hub of experiential learning and community engagement. Workshops and community building events are scheduled throughout the season and are open and free for gardeners and the general public.
NEXUS is grateful to the following offices and organizations for their generous support: City of Cincinnati Safe and Clean Neighborhood Fund, Women of Excellence Giving Circle, Urban Harvest, Al Neyer, Inc., Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, Evan's Landscaping, Xavier University's Physical Plant, Dorothy Day Center for Faith & Justice, Center for Mission and Identity, and the Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati.
