A Community Garden Nonprofit in Bronzeville

Bronzeville is a historically African American neighborhood just east of Downtown Columbus, OH. As more and more people want to live closer to downtown, the neighborhood is undergoing something of a renaissance. The Douglas Foundation Int'l, is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that is committed to making sure young people, elderly residents, and single-parent families are not left behind. Our community garden projects are aimed at improving the beauty of the community and eliminating "food deserts" by providing healthy, sustainable food sources.
