Join Local Matters and the YMCA of Central Ohio at our collaborative growing venture, the Hoover-Y Learning Garden, for a cookout dinner provided by Two Caterers from 5-8pm. Taste ingredients from the garden and sip some delicious local beer from Barleys! You can also enjoy summer games hosted by Slow Food Columbus and live music. Picnic goers are encouraged to bring your favorite pickled or preserved summer fruit or vegetable to share. Tickets are $35 for adults, and $12 for children 7-17 (children 6 and under are free) and all proceeds support Local Matters’ Growing Matters programming.

We also work with communities in need to create access to healthy, affordable foods.
