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. Read the Saint Anthony Park Community Garden has Governance statement available for review. For more background, read the annual report.
