42 Plots Anticipated

Here you can apply for an open garden plot! You will be added to a list of renters in the order you apply. This is the order the plots will be given out. Each person/family will rent a space for a year and have an opportunity to renew each year. Currently there are 10-20 plots available for use. Not to worry, as we grow so will the amount of plots we have!

Make sure to apply early and reserve your plot!

Latest Update

We had a successful first year and are excited for this coming growing season! As we prepare for spring, small tasks are being performed around the garden to include general weeding, mixing compost, gravel and soil refresh, and other administrative duties. With the demand increase, we expect to be able to add an addition 6-8 beds from last year!
