About Us​

Helping Hands in the Garden is a non-profit organization that assists cancer patients with clean-up of their gardens. Since 2009, Helping Hands in the Garden has been dedicated to helping people with cancer by caring for their gardens, free of charge, while they undergo treatment for cancer. Founded by Elaine Euwer, a cancer survivor, who experienced firsthand the comfort that garden tending with friends can provide in a time of need. This program was created with love and care of the community in mind.

Gardening is an activity that supports our physical, mental and emotional selves. Being surrounded by plants and connected with the Earth is a path to better health. Let us take care of your gardens while you devote your time to healing. We welcome your participation to the extent that you are able: from helping to simply sitting and watching.

Helping Hands in the Garden currently serves Franklin, Fairfield, and Pickaway counties in Ohio.


Our Mission

Helping Hands in the Garden is a volunteer organization consisting of people who love to play in the ‘dirt’. Many of our volunteers have battled cancer or know someone dear who has. We are passionate about helping cancer patients remove the stress of worrying about their gardens while they are undergoing treatment.
