Garden Plots 1


The Park & Recreation Department, in cooperation with Central Maintenance, offers  16’x 20’ mini Garden Plots located in Mittineague Park. Central Maintenance will prepare plots for planting and identify plot boundaries by numbered posts along with access to water provided to gardeners. 

Open registration will begin on Monday, April 6, 2020, on a first come first serve basis.

Central Maintenance will assume the responsibility for the initial tilling of the plots, therefore gardeners CANNOT BEGIN planting until April 20, 2020 (with consideration of weather and soil condition.)

Please note the following additional rules concerning eligibility:

1.  Person registered must work the plot.  Those who failed to maintain their plot last year will not be considered this year.

2.  Only one plot per person or family unit.        

3.  No group registration will be accepted.

4.  Plots not planted by June 5, 2020, will be reassigned by the Park & Recreation Department on a first come, first served basis.
