    Ohio State University Extension and 14 community partners have accounced their plans to transform a vacant lot in Lima, Ohio into a community garden.

It is also a result of the Ohio Land Exchange (OH/LEX) project, which included the city of Lima, Ohio State Lima, and OSU's Knowlton School of Architecture.
