Garden Plots are available at our Sandwich Park District Community Garden.
The plots are 10 x 50 (1 row) and limited to two (2) per household. We ask you to plant more and donate whatever you can to the local food pantries. We have a list of those locations and times. The entire garden is available for residents, non-residents, non-profits, and businesses to rent. The park district will reserve some smaller plots for local food pantries and churches if needed. By mid October you will be required to clean your area. (Compost bin is available).

Cost: $25.00 per plot for residents, non-residents, and non-profit organizations. An additional $25.00 refundable security deposit will be collected.
