Garden plots available for the 2014 season at the Firestone Community Garden

-A A +A

 FIRESTONE — Residents can now rent garden plots in the Firestone Community Garden, located on the property just north of the Firestone Town Hall, 151 Grant Ave.

The community garden allows residents the opportunity to grow vegetables and flowers in three garden plot sizes: 4-by-8 feet, 8-by-8 feet and 8-by-16 feet. In addition, a limited number of plots are elevated with wood timbers to make gardening more convenient for older adults.

Garden rental prices are $15, $40 and $60, respectively, with senior discount pricing available. The rental fees cover administration costs of the garden, as well as the water, which is supplied by the Town of Firestone. The garden is established as an organic garden, thus no pesticides or chemicals are allowed.

The community garden rental agreement is available at Firestone Town Hall and online at www.ci.firestone.co.us/CommunityGarden. The website also includes a garden map.
