Community Garden applications being taken


News Staff - March 9, 2018

STURGIS, SD – If you’ve got a green thumb but no space to use it, the Community Garden program offered in Sturgis may be for you.  City officials have announced that applications for spaces are now available through March 31.

The Sturgis Community Garden Project began in 2012.  The garden areas were created to provde citizens who may not have room for a garden a place to plant and raise produce.  The Sturgis Parks Department helps with tilling and water is available at both sites.

The City Park location contains 10' x 20' beds and is located on Blanche Street near the soccer fields. The fee is $25 that covers the cost of water and insurance.

 The second location is at the corner of Ball Park Road and Arizona Avenue. This garden has 4' x 5' raised beds. The fee for a spot in this garden is $5.00 applied to water and insurance costs.

Each garden is fenced and each has a shed for tool storage. Gardner’s are  given the combination to open  locks on the gates and sheds.

Those gardeners who were assigned a plot last year will get preference for a spot in the same location. If there are plots still available after all returning applications are filled, a lottery will take place from the remaining applications.

There will be a mandatory spring garden meeting for all gardeners taking part in the program on Thursday, April 19 at 7:00 PM at the Community Center. All gardeners must read and sign the 'garden rules' before a plot is assigned.

To learn more about the Community Garden program and to download an application, see  the Community Garden page on line.
