      Scioto SWCD is involved with several gardening projects through the 2017 gardening season.  See below!

14th Street Garden

This is a partner project with The Counseling Center’s Summer Outreach Day Camp, Farley Square Headstart, and OSU Extension.

Garden located One Block West of the 14th Street Community Center - just before the train tracks.

Garden Volunteers needed AUG-OCT after Outreach Camp concludes.  Contact Kate to make arrangements for your group to participate.

Salvation Army Pantry Garden

Grow goodness in our community!

Join us at the Portsmouth Salvation Army to raise a community garden to benefit the food pantry, lunch program, and those in need.  

Starting May 30th through October we will be meeting at the Salvation Army Garden at 10:30 AM every Tuesday.

Special organized volunteer events possible by arrangement. Independent volunteers needed for watering. Contact Kate for details.


The Pioneer Garden is located at the Shawnee State Park Nature Center.  

Take a moment to stop in at the garden and visit the nature center.  Pull weeds or water as you wish.
