In May 2009 the initial plots of the St. Clairsville Community Garden were planted. All 41 plots were quickly reserved and gardeners had great success. The transformation the garden made from a bare lot in early spring to a bountiful garden was astounding. The program continued to be a success through the 2010 season.

The community garden includes (31) 10' X 10' garden plots, (10) 5' X 10' garden plots, a children's garden, a demonstration garden by the Master Gardeners of the Ohio State University Extension Office, composting bins, and educational sessions. Anyone wanting more information please contact the Mayor's Secretary, Kathy Kaluger at 740-695-1324 or email

Applications are available in the City Building. The yearly fee is $15 ($20.00 for non-residents) for a 5' X 10' plot and $30 ($35.00 for non-residents) for a 10' X 10' plot for residents of the City of St. Clairsville. Payments can be made in person or mailed to: City of St. Clairsville, Attn: Kathy Kaluger, PO Box 537, St. Clairsville, OH 43950. Donations to help sponsor the demonstration garden or children's garden will be gladly accepted.

The community garden is one feature in the master plan for the construction of a park on the city-owned fairgrounds. The master plan can be seen in the J.B. Martin Recreation and Senior Center or by clicking on the community page.
