The Community Garden
The Grant Park Community Garden is located in Grant Park near the corner of 9th and Ivory. The garden is an all organic garden, and we provides tools, water, soil amendments, and almost everything you need to start growing. It has 44 garden beds, all of which enjoy full sun and typically are all rented out for the growing season. The beds are usually rented out by a variety of gardeners, many with years of experience who can help new gardeners out.
The growing season typically begins during the second weekend of April and ends the last weekend of October. If the weather permits, gardening may start as soon as April first. Each gardener is expected to help with spring and fall clean up, as well as watering duties throughout the season.
Rental Rates for the 2019 Growing Season:
4×8 Garden Bed – $25
4×12 Garden Bed – $35
