Community Garden update – spring 2016

The Brevoort Park Community Garden began operating in May, 2015, with 28 plots, located on city property on the northwest corner of Arlington and Porter. Each plot measured 8 ½ x 17 feet and the registration fee was $25 for the season. The area is watered automatically five nights / week by city sprinklers. A tap was also provided.

Late in May, the garden was rototilled and community members held a pair of work bees to spread and dig in two truckloads of compost that was brought in. Planting commenced immediately thereafter. Garden members also provided a picnic table and a lockable bin for storing hoses and garden tools.

The enthusiasm of the first season’s members was inspiring, with all indicating that they want to  take part again in 2016. Over the winter, 21 new people added their names to a waiting list for plots. An application for expansion of the garden to accommodate these requests was submitted to the City during the winter. It has been approved, doubling the size of the garden, admitting those on the waiting list and leaving additional plots open on a first-come-first-served basis. The registration fee will be the same as in 2015.

Dates for the first meeting of the season will soon be announced. The City and the garden committee will outline the boundaries for the expansion and a date will be set for the first rototilling of the season. The city will turn the water on shortly after that.
