This three-year initiative began with an OSU Connect and Collaborate Grant, and has evolved into the South Jackson Community Garden Project. 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.

The goals of the project include fighting food security, focusing on health and wellness, and developing vacant land. It will be completed in spring 2019.
