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, Non-profit organizations, and businesses. Deposit Required: A $25.00 refundable deposit will be held until your plot is cleaned and inspected. Person(s) renting a plot must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s license. Special registration forms must be completed at the park district. Part of your obligation is to weed and clean your area during the season and at the end. If you do not fulfill your obligation to clean your plot you may jeopardize your opportunity to rent next year and will forfeit the $25 deposit. The Local Food Pantries are: St. John’s Lutheran (Somonauk) Food Pantry, Cornerstone Food Pantry, Harvest Chapel Food Pantry.
Location: The garden is located on Gletty Road, just south of Rt. 34, on the right side of the road. *The park district tills the area before and after the season and supplies water tanks. You will need to supply necessary tools.Location: Gletty Park Garden Coordinators: Staff
