COMMUNITY GARDEN

JIM HOUSE COMMUNITY GARDEN

The Jim House Community Garden on Commercial Street was created in honor of Jim House, a local LGBTQIA+ activist, and founder of the GLO Center! In the summer of 2021, the vacant lot beside the GLO Center was transformed into a community garden and outdoor classroom space. The Jim House Community Garden hosts classes, events, meetings, and a gardening program for the Springfield community.
