The Ohio State University (OSU) funded an outreach and engagement grant to design the Gardeners' Toolshed, a garden center kiosk. The kiosk represented a unique opportunity for OSU to introduce itself to the citizens of Ohio in the area of gardening and pest management. The kiosk is a touch-screen-enabled computer with specific content in 14 areas ranging from plants to water gardens. This project was piloted in a garden center in southwest Ohio for just over 1 year. A user survey revealed they were quite pleased with the overall user interface, appearance, and informational content of the kiosk.
