the project

We hope to hire a program manager to develop summer internships and opportunities for local students in the community garden. 

the steps

Once we've hired a program manager and created more opportunies for local students to work in the garden, these are some of the goals we want to focus on:

1. Rebuild/expand the garden fence enclosing a new high tunnel green house to ensure protection for gardeners from deer, wildlife, etc.

2. Create a more effective composting system

3. Repair the 10 year old raised beds and rotten wooden boards

why we're doing it

We want the Oberlin community garden to improve the health and lives of the community while promoting environmental sustainabilty. 


We plan to hire a program manager to develop internships and opportunities for local high school students to work in the garden. We will need to be able to pay the program manager. We plan to pay the program manager $4,000 for the summer. We want to pay the manager more than the mininum wage in Ohio. We have decided to pay $10 an hour and estimate that the program manager will work 40 hours a week. This equals $400 a week for a little over 2 months. 


SUBTOTAL = 4,000
ioby Platform Fee $35
ioby Donation Processing Fee (3%) $120
