Over 500 community garden plots are available on an annual basis. Each year, garden plots are available to residents through the Park District’s Garden Plot Program. Plots are 20 feet by 30 feet each and are $15 per plot for residents ($30 for non-residents), with no limit on the number that can be reserved.
Those who rented garden plots in 2018 may reserve their same plots beginning on Monday, March 4, 2019. Starting on March 11, 2019, any remaining plots will be made available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserved plots may be accessed from April 15 through Oct. 15.
NEW! Both sites now have potable water, made available through the Park District’s rainwater collection program. Fill your water containers on-site and nourish your plots with natural rainwater!
The Fox Valley Park District wishes gardeners success while growing fresh, healthy produce at the garden plots!
