The community garden is coming back this spring!
It will be at the Heritage Center again near the Palmer-Epard Cabin. This will be a place for people to reconnect with the frugal homesteader by growing their own food and getting their hands dirty. The Monument will provide a free 10 foot x 15 foot plot and water. No pesticides will be allowed. The plots will be available from dawn to dusk daily.
Before applying for a garden plot, applicants must read the Homestead Community Garden Rules and Regulations. Click here to read them.
Application period is February 19, 2013 until March 15, 2013.
Plots must be under cultivation by May 17, 2013.
