Our Abitibi Dumpster has a permanent location on our parking pad off of Reading Road near the main building. Please drop off your junk mail, newspapers, magazines, and cereal boxes. The CGC gets a small amount of money for the weight of the paper, but more importantly, we can make a difference in the amount of space NOT used in a landfill.
We recognize that all who come to the Civic Garden Center bring varied gifts to strengthen the mission. Sharing your assets come in many forms and all are important:
- stock transfers
We thank you for all you are willing to share as we work together to build community through gardening, education and environmental stewardship.

Christmas is just around the corner...
Support the Civic Garden Center through our annual Christmas Tree Sale!
We will have freshly cut Fraser fir trees, plain and hand-decorated wreaths and white pine roping for sale, as well as unique handmade items, garden gifts and pottery by the Clay Alliance. And, new this year, a vintage Christmas décor selection to help spruce up your tree while reusing, repurposing and recycling!
Enjoy our unique holiday scene with family and friends while you shop for a tree and gifts, sip hot cocoa and take a stroll through the lovely gardens and CGC grounds. On November 30 and December 7, videographers from Numediacy will be available to help you create a video card to send out for the holidays. No crowds here, just friendly faces and an earth-friendly approach to the holidays!
Trees range in size from 3' to 9' tall, and delivery can be provided for an additional fee; 9'-10' trees are available through pre-order only. The sale will open Friday, November 29 and continue through December 15, so get the goods while they last! Orders will be accepted through November 15. All proceeds benefit the outreach programs and operation of the Civic Garden Center. Thank you for your support!

The Civic Garden Center is an oasis in the city - eight beautifully landscaped acres open daily to visitors at no charge and located 2.5 miles from downtown Cincinnati. Volunteers donate their time to maintain the grounds, and they and others provide financial support to the organization that was founded in 1942. Find out more about us...
