Sioux Falls Community Garden 2013 Season
Thank you, Community Gardeners!
Interest in the Community Garden program continues to build each year. As of March 25, 2013, all garden locations are full. We are not able to take any further applications for the 2013 Community Garden Season. Waiting lists for all locations have been developed.
If your application has been successful, you should receive notification and an invoice for your 2013 Community Garden plot during the first week in April. The season fee for the University Center garden is $25 and the fee for all other gardens is $15. Unsuccessful applicants will also be notified.
The Sioux Falls Community Garden is a cooperative effort involving the City of Sioux Falls, Minnehaha County Master Gardeners, Minnehaha County Extension Service, and a dedicated group of volunteers, including more than 200 individual gardeners.
Garden placement is on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to people who successfully gardened in the Sioux Falls Community Garden program the previous year.
People who choose to be community gardeners are expected to maintain their garden plots for the entire growing season and to provide volunteer help in preparing the garden sites with activities such as staking plots and applying organic mulch. Gardeners are also expected to clean their plots at the end of each growing season.
Applications for the 2014 Community Garden Season will be available at the Park Office or online starting no later than January 15, 2014.
