Please make sure nothing that can damage the tillage equipment is left behind.  Failure to maintain and remove objects may prohibit your future use of space.
  • Be respectful of tall crops (such as sunflowers and corn) as to not plant these where they would shade an adjacent lot.
  • Any notices from the City will be posted on the back side of the Community Garden Kiosk.  Please follow any instructions provided.
  • Because plots are close together, we ask you to be respectful of your neighbors by not walking on or otherwise disturbing their gardens.
