Concordia Community Garden has plots available
December 11, 2016 by Sarah Jenkins
When the seventh growing season at the Concordia Community Garden of Hope begins next spring, there may be 10 or so new gardeners joining the stalwarts who return each year.
Cecilia Thrash, who coordinates the garden for the Sisters of St. Joseph, said there are several open plots in the organic garden, and she encourages anyone interested to give her a call at 243-4428.
Gardeners pay $15 for the use of a 12-by-46-foot plot for one growing season, which generally runs from about March 1 to Oct. 1.
Before they sign up, Thrash will review the rules and regulations with potential gardeners and ask that they make a commitment to take care of their plot for the full growing season.
In 2009, the Sisters of St. Joseph donated the use of a half-acre of their Motherhouse property for a community organic garden. The garden, at 13th and Broadway, has about 25 plots for growing both vegetables and flowers.
