Community garden plots are going fast

Print Article

SANDPOINT — It’s true! The 11th season at the Community Garden is happening and garden plots are now available to the public.

Plotters from last season always have first priority for renewing their plots by Jan. 1 of the new year. As that has taken place, now is the time to reserve a plot or two before the remaining plots are sold.

The price of plots has stayed the same since the beginning of this project. Plot sizes are 4-foot by 8-foot for $20 and 7-foot by 7-foot is $25. The fees cover water, use of garden tools, and any items donated by the community.

The Sandpoint Community Garden is located at Dub’s Field on the corner of Pine and Highway w. Thanks to Sandpoint Parks and Recreation’s new computerized plot reservation system you can secure and pay for your plots via the internet. Call Sandpoint Parks and Recreation at 208-263-3613 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for help in navigating the signup process.

Pat Wentworth, Community Garden coordinator said the group needs garden soil, aged manure and composting material — grass clippings (non-chemically treated), straw, and leaves. “We also are in need of another wheelbarrow or two to help make garden maintenance easier and wheelbarrow races more competitive,” she added

In addition, seed and vegetable starts are greatly appreciated and are used for planting in the six plots the garden reserve for donations to the food bank and other community food organizations. All donations can be dropped off at the garden and put in (or by) the shed.

Reservations are on a first-call, first-reserved basis so don’t dawdle.
