Welcome Community Gardeners!
Spring is just around the corner so it’s time to start the planning for this years’ garden.
We would like to begin taking reservations for plots now with the understanding that payment be made by May 1, 2021. Plots will be assigned after that time. If you’d like to request the same plot as last year and you maintained your garden plot per contract last year just indicate it on your application.(attached)
An update/clarification on plot maintenance will be coming in the near future to stress the importance of maintaining plots and produce donation.
The garden committee meets the first Saturday of each month generally at the Oak Grove Lutheran Church Hall at 9:00 am and we would like to extend an invitation to all gardeners to attend these meetings. hope you can make the next meeting at 9:00 am.
We will hold our next garden meeting on Saturday, March 7th at 9:00 am in the church basement. We would love for all to attend. We will be discussing garden prep work, advertising, possible fall speaker event, and much more!
Thanks for gardening with us hope to garden with you this season.

We're on our way to our fourth season in the community garden. In 2015 we raised many different kinds of vegtables, donating 1200 pounds of fresh produce to the Salvation Army Food Bank and keeping a lot of produce for self consumption. All on 20 plots. We had around 35 plots 2016 year, so far, and enough ground to do 100 plus. In 2016 we donated over a ton of produce to the Food Bank. 3000 produce for 2017. In 2020 our donation total was 2,411 pounds of fresh produce which was donated to The Mental Health Association.
Become a part of what we are doing. Reserve your plot today. The goal is 45 plots.
