Garden Plots

The Community Garden is a wonderful way to meet new people and grow a garden when you may not have the space of your own. We are happy to provide this to our residents who have experienced great growing seasons!

Each garden bed rental lasts for one season, April through September. If you tended a garden the previous season, you will receive first priority the following year. However, by March 15th, unreserved beds will be made available to other community members,
who may choose any bed they want for a fee. Limit two (2) garden beds per person. 

Water is available  for you to use to keep your plants healthy and growing. You need to bring your own water carrying containers. Plant and seed purchases are the responsibility of the gardener.
