2016 THOMPSON’S STATION COMMUNITY GARDEN

garden

The community garden is an organic garden.  Organic practices must be used for planting, fertilizers, plant disease management, and pest control.  The Thompson’s Station city workers till the soil, mow the lawns, and pump water to a tank from the nearby creek.  The rest of the work at the community gardens are done by committed and passionate garden volunteers.

Garden Plots Available:

$50 per FULL PLOT = $25.00 + $25.00 refundable deposit fee.  Full Plot size  is  between 625 -750 sq ft (17×55). The $25 deposit is refundable if the garden plot has been maintained all year and cleared  in late fall.  The deposit can also be rolled into the next year.

$30 per PARTIAL PLOT= $15.00 + $15.00 refundable deposit fee.
Partial plot size is between 312-330 sq ft (17×27.5). The $15.00 deposit is refundable if the garden plot has been maintained all year and cleared  in late fall. The deposit can also be rolled into the next year.
