Community Garden Plot Program
Call (630)789-7090 to rent a Garden Plot
The Community Garden Plot Program is an opportunity for individuals, families, or organized groups to be part of a community gardening program. Residents and non-residents participating in the program enjoy nature, plant flowers, grow fruits and vegetables for food, and get exercise from the practice of gardening. 6 garden plots will be available to rent on a first come first served (one plot per person/group) basis. Renters can keep whatever their plot produces.
Raised Garden Plots measure 4 x 6 feet.
The Garden Plots are located at Peirce Park (700 E. Walnut, behind the Wellness House)
The Garden Plot season is June 1 – October 31 (weather permitting). Plots are managed independently by each group through the end of the season.
Plots include dirt. All other materials should be provided by the group managing the plot.
The Garden Plot Manual will be provided. The rules and guidelines within this manual ensure that all participating gardeners have the opportunity for a positive gardening experience, that garden plot sites are a positive asset to the community and that all plots are used in a productive manner. By following the rules and guidelines, gardeners show that they want the garden plot program to be an important aspect in the community. All gardeners must agree to follow the rules and guidelines of the Garden Plot Program.
