"When gardeners garden, it's not just the plants that grow,
but the gardeners themselves." ~Ken Druse

The annual growing season is March through February. Individual
plots are 20’ x 20’ and are leased on a yearly basis for a fee of $55,
which includes the plot and water. Plots are released on a first-come,
first-served basis. They are available to individuals or groups.
Gardeners must sign a written agreement prior to starting their garden.
As of mid July we have a few garden plots available in our Community Garden for a discounted price of $40 for a 20 X 20 plot readying for planting. You will rent the plot through March 2018! Contact Mike Bates to get your's today!
