Westerville Garden Club
Kitchen Garden behind the historical Benjamin Hanby House at 160 W. Main St., Westerville is
a garden representative of the needs during the period 1850-1900.  The garden is divided into block
areas:  Culinary Herbs, Fragrance & Dye Plants, Medicinal Plants, Vegetables, and Perimeter
Plantings along the fence.  Our garden club implemented the Kitchen Garden in 2005 and continues
to maintain it.
Presidential Oak Grove is located in Hanby Park at 115 E. Park St., Westerville.  In 2007 our
garden club planted nine native oak trees, eight to honor the eight presidents from Ohio and one for the
next future president from Ohio. Each tree is fronted by a plaque with a biographical sketch of its
respective president.  The plaque also indicates the years he was president, his presidential number
plus the type of oak tree planted.
First Responders Park located at 374 W. Main St., Westerville was created to honor fallen
firefighters and recognizes the tragedy of 9/ll.  Our garden club plants and maintains the flower beds.
WesterFlora Garden Tour has been organized by our garden club since 1992.  It is an annual free
tour in July featuring gardens and landscapes of Westerville residents. Westerville Parks and Recreation
Department and Hoover Gardens help sponsor this tour.
