Fiskars’ “Project Orange Thumb”
Transforms Site of Abandoned Building into a Beautiful, Productive Community Garden.
On June 2, the temperature hit 95 degrees in Columbus, Ohio. Yet even intense heat, poison ivy, heaps of trash and rotting tires couldn’t stop Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb from transforming an abandoned lot in the Linden neighborhood into a food-yielding garden that doubles as a vibrant performing arts venue. It was all made possible by a tool that can’t be bought in stores: the positive attitudes of over 70 volunteers.
I think it’s time for people to start to look at the beauty of what we have in the Linden area as opposed to all the negative things that’s reported in the news
said Kwodwo Ababio ~ Owner of the adjacent New Harvest Café and “spiritual leader” behind starting community gardens in the Linden neighborhood.
Some of the healthy, affordable food grown in the new garden will be dispersed to needy residents through Ababio’s New Harvest Café — a life-saving boon in a community plagued by diabetes and obesity. Ababio hopes to create eight more community gardens throughout North Linden, transforming the neighborhood into an “Inner City Oasis.” Yet Ababio thinks the spiritual sustenance provided through arts and education will be just as important as the nutritional value supplied by the transformed space.
“I’m an artist, first of all,” said Ababio as he cut ham sandwiches for the dozens of volunteers hard at work next door. “People want to call me an activist. But the community is my canvas.”
Local residents will use the garden as a community gathering space and performing arts venue for plays, concerts, poetry readings and other special events. The garden will also serve as an environmental learning laboratory for the Linden-McKinley STEM Academy, where students can get hands-on experience learning about and caring for a wide range of plant life. In addition, Bethel A.M.E. Church, an organization that has been reaching out to help Linden families for years, plans to send volunteers from the church to help care for the garden and use the space as a learning sanctuary for its Sunday school program.
