Produce from the Garden of Hope

The Garden of Hope is a vegetable garden for cancer survivors on Ohio State’s Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory, offered free by JamesCare for Life. The program’s mission is to provide evidence-based nutrition information and education on the benefits of a plant-based diet. Participants harvest fresh vegetables and take part in nutritional programs at the garden. A list of upcoming classes with links to registration can be found at https://cancer.osu.edu/patient-support/activities-and-classes/nutrition.
