Garden plots and raised beds available to rent!

At the GROW! Community Garden we have both raised beds and ground level plots for rent. These are tilled and fertilized with aged manure. We have limited numbers of tall raised beds for $25 and $35 per year, depending on their size. In-ground plots range from 4’ X 20’, which rents for $20 ($0.25 per square foot) to 10’ X 20’, which rents for $50. The low-cost rental price also includes water.
