Kingfield Community Garden Group
Nothing is quite as satisfying as planting seeds and seeing nature’s blessings emerge through the soil – except possibly eating the harvest! For people who like to garden but don’t have much space of their own, the Kingfield Pleasant Community Garden is the perfect solution!
2015 Garden Plot Application Now Available!
Now in its sixth year, the garden (located just north of the CPFA, Center for Performing Arts, 3754 Pleasant Ave South) is available for use by individual gardeners in our community. Plot rental for one season is $40. Each gardener must also agree to perform 1 hour per month minimum in service to the Common Garden, as well as participate in 2 communal workdays, and in pre- and post-season cleanup.
Applications and fees are due by noon on Tuesday, March 17, 2015. You will be notified on or before April 8 if you will receive a garden plot. If more applicants are available than plots, a lottery will take place. We reserve 20% of the plots for CPFA tenants (either studio or hourly).
A mandatory meeting will be held on the evening of April 29 for those who receive garden plots.
Applications and plot fees can be mailed to this address or slid under the door; fees must be included with the registration. Note: If your application is not selected to receive a plot this season, your fee will be returned.
