Members of the public are invited to submit applications for community garden plots starting on Wednesday, March 1. Garden plots are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority being given to returning gardeners who submit an application by April 1.
Community gardens are sources of fresh produce, places for physical exercise, sites of outdoor education, and a space for the community to connect. Gardens play an important role in enhancing physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being which helps to create socially sustainable communities. Collaboration in these spaces builds a stronger sense of community ownership.
Community garden plots are available for rent at three locations:
- Bonito - 527 W Elm Avenue
- Izabel – 2300 N Izabel Street
- Southside – 900 S O’Leary Street
Plot rentals cost $65 for the growing season (May – October). Full and half scholarships are available for interested individuals on a case-by-case basis. Learn more about the community gardens and apply for a garden plot at www.flagstaff.az.gov/gardens. Residents can also view a video on Flagstaff’s community gardens at www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukFGcAcLw0M.
