Apply Now For 2012 Community Garden Plots

By Staff | Feb 7, 2012

Applications are now being accepted for the new growing season at Emmetsburg Community Garden. The application forms are available at Emmetsburg City Hall. Repeat gardeners are asked to turn in their applications as soon as possible to insure that they receive the same garden plot they had in previous years.

One hundred garden plots are awarded at $5 per plot, with the small fee used to help defray expenses for water usage, hoses, stakes, etc. Plots are awarded on a first-come, first served basis.

The community garden has been completely full each of its first three years, so it is advisable to get applications in as soon as possible. New and repeat gardeners may now apply.

Gardens will be tilled and ready to plant no sooner than April 6 and will be vacated by mid-October. For more information, contact Howard Argabright at 712-852-3610.
