The Colgate Community Garden is now accepting applications for its 2015 Garden Plot Program. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals in the community to be able to tend their own garden plot within the Colgate Community Garden. The garden team hopes for the Colgate Community Garden to become a place where community members can come together to enjoy learning about gardening and sustainable living.
Each of the garden plots offered are approximately 4 ft. W x 8 ft. L x 10 in. H. Plots are constructed using rot-resistant, untreated lumber. Program participants will have access to the garden and garden tools but must provide their own seeds and plants. A $25 annual fee per plot and $5 annual refundable deposit is required for use of one of the garden plots. A Garden Plot Agreement must also be signed by participants, showing agreement to following the rules and guidelines established by the Colgate Community Garden.
Community Garden Plot space is limited and applications will be accepted first-come, first-served. For more information about this program or to apply for a garden plot, please contact Community Garden Manager Beth Roy (email@example.com, 315-335-1433).
