IMG_20160808_193812828The Giving Garden is a project that was spurred into action not only by the need to visually upgrade Main Street Alley, but by a sense of responsibility that the Chardon Square Association felt to address hunger in Chardon and Geauga County. The garden is used to grow vegetables that are donated to the food bank at Pilgrim Christian Church.

The mural, done in a style dubbed “contemporary whimsey” by local artist Chris Klee of Square City Tattoo, has received great acclaim from many residents.
