If you would like to garden and don’t have the space for it, try a plot in the Mason Community Garden on Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road.
Mason is pleased to partner with resident gardeners by providing the “ground” work for the garden. The city’s Public Works Department will provide initial tilling of the plots, add wood chip pathways and a composting area, provide trash pickup, and place a water truck on site. The rest is up to you and your own growing techniques and enthusiasm!
Vegetables and flowers grown at the garden may be used for your own needs, donated to Mason Food Pantry or other local pantries, or given to friends and family.
Applications for use of a 10′ x 15′ foot garden plot are taken in the spring, generally beginning in March and ending on April 21. A contribution of $20 is suggested to cover expenses for the season. Prior year gardeners are assigned first. The remaining plots are assigned to first-time individual gardeners and groups.
The program is successful due to the Mason residents who volunteer to coordinate the garden. If you have questions about the garden, please contact the volunteers listed on the application form.
Applications can be downloaded below or picked up at Mason Community Center and Mason Municipal Center. Completed applications may be e-mailed to the volunteer coordinators, dropped off at Mason Municipal Center, placed in the Municipal Center drop box at the end of the passenger drop-off drive, or dropped off at Mason Community Center.
This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends, meet neighbors, and share in a wonderful community event.2017 applications will be accepted through April 21. Applications will be accepted after April 21 depending on availability of garden plots. Plots will be available for use from May 6 through October 31.
