Looking for a little extra space this summer to raise fresh vegetables? Look no further than the Wilson Community Garden in Lafayette. Located at the intersection of West Emma and Miller Streets, 500 South Miller Avenue, you can reserve your own little piece of farmland right in the middle of town. Each 20 foot by 20 foot or 10 foot by 40 foot plot rents for $50 and 10 foot by 20 foot plots are $35 and are irrigated with well water on site. Raised bed plots are $50.00 per plot, and are 32 sq. ft.
Growing season runs from April through early November with all plots required to be cleared of plants and have the soil turned by November 12. In order to be eligible to rent a garden plot for the following year, clean up is required at the end of the growing season.
Please call (303) 665-4206 for information or to reserve your garden plot at Wilson Community Garden.
