Please help the Cincinnati Zoo and our Avondale neighborhood win $15,000 for our community garden and urban farm through Nature’s Path “Gardens for Good” Contest! This is a project that has been in the works for a few years now. Just behind the Dury Employee Parking lot, on Northern Avenue, there used to be a vacant lot. It was filled with broken chain linked fencing, poison ivy, graffiti and trash. In addition, in the past 10 years, the neighborhood (called the Avenue District) has lost a lot of safe, green space for children to play and neighbors to gather.
