Waite Park Community Garden Sign Up is Coming!

Garden Sign.jpgSpring is right around the corner, so is Waite Park Garden registration. Mark your calendars!

NEW Gardener registration is Saturday, April 14, 10 a.m. - Noon at the Waite Park Community Center 

Saturday, May 12, 9 a.m. to Noon. Plant Exchange will begin at the Waite Park Community Center and get to know your gardening neighbor.  We will split up into our 7 sections (about 10 gardeners per section), elect the section captain and do a little meet and greet before going to the garden for a community work day event.
From each gardening unit, the WPCG requests an annual gardening fee of $35 and a 12-hour community commitment each season. The community hours can be manual labor in the garden maintaining the grounds by mowing, weeding, and other work as designated by our maintenance coordinator, serving in a leadership capacity, and participating in WPCG planning meetings and social events.

The Waite Park Community Garden (WPCG) is a community of 72 gardeners and their partners working together for a successful growing season at 3601 Lincoln St NE. The Waite Park Community Garden is a sub-committee of the Waite Park Community Council.

You can find out more information at the Waite Park Community Garden.
