info on other programs


The Urbana Park District operates a small organic community garden program 
in Meadowbrook Park.  We have ~140 plots that are either 17'*30' or 
'17*15'.  The public may rent these plots from mid-February through the 
first weekend in November.  The program has been in existance since 1978 
and has allowed only organic gardening.  We currently provide the space, 
water, wheel barrels, manure and a part-time garden supervisor.  I am

know about your's:

1.	What fee do you charge?

3.	How many plots are availabel to rent?
4.	Who may rent them?
5.	What guidelines must gardeners follow?
6.	How many paid staff are involved with the program?  What are their

	Tools = (specify please)
	Manure =
	Composting =
	Classes = (specify please)
