Founded in 1942, The Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati is the second oldest non-profit civic garden center in the State of Ohio. In 1957, Cincinnati philanthropist Cornelius Hauck, Sr. presented the Civic Garden center with a two-acre parcel of his "Sooty Acres" estate, located at the corner of Reading and William Howard Taft Roads.

This is a nice little working garden in an urban environment. Its shade areas have plenty of hostas and good sized trees of a wide variety of species. They had several alternative approaches for backyard composting on view during my visit.
