Hey there! I'd love a plot at your garden.
Our plots vary in size and are from $20 to $40 in yearly dues. We require a reasonable level of upkeep for the plots and do have restrictions on certain invasive plants (e.g. blackberries) in our beds. We have water available on site and have gardening tools available. Please contact us if you are interested in getting a plot for the 2018 season.
Is the garden secure?
Our garden is well fenced and utilizes barbed wire mesh. All patrons of the garden that possess plots have a key. Guests are welcome in the garden, but only under the supervision of a patron.
What kind of events do you have?
We have many types of events at the garden from spring to autumn.
Seasonal events include our Halloween and Easter events. These events provide food, tours, contests, and host games.
Play Day is held once a month from April until October each year for ages 6-12. We host games such as tug-of-war, hide & seek, duck duck goose, and more!
Work days are monthly days from March until October where our patrons and local volunteers assist in cleaning the garden, painting, weeding, and minor construction. These days are an excellent opportunity to earn volunteer hours.
Can I pet the animals?
Yes and no.
Any animal that will allow itself to be pet is welcome to pet. However, picking up our chickens, ducks, and geese is strictly prohibited. Garden staff can facilitate holding certain birds on a case to case basis.
Can I feed the animals?
Friends from the community routinely offer our birds scraps of food. Bread is welcome, but leafy veggies are preferred. Please avoid dairy products such as cheese and butter.
