Applications for returning gardeners are due February 15.
Applications for new gardeners for 2013 are available for download below or you can pick one up at the co-op. They are due March 11 and you must read the Garden Policies which will also be attached below once our website is fixed. New gardeners are chosen by lottery, and usually there are more applicants than there are spaces available, so check out Gardening Matters for other community gardening locations.
St. Anthony Park Community garden was established in 1981 by gardening enthusiasts on land leased from the Burlington Northern Railroad. Over the years, the garden grew to 96 plots. In 1998 the land was purchased from the Railroad by the St. Anthony Park Community Council with funds raised by gardeners, local businesses and government grants.
More than 96 vegetable and flower plots are rented on an annual basis. The garden is managed by volunteers. Gardeners pay an annual fee which includes access to a watering system. Plots are assigned on a first come first serve basis early in the year. Gardeners who have had a plot in previous years are given preference.
