community garden

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.

vegetablesMason 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 now available. Prior year gardeners are assigned first. The remaining plots are assigned to first-time individual gardeners and groups.

Applications can be downloaded here 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 or at Mason Community Center. The deadline for applications is Friday, May 1, 2020.

Packet pick-up for confirmed plot assignments will be on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3 from noon to 4:00 p.m. and Wednesday, May 6 from noon to 6:00 p.m. at Mason Community Center.

The garden opens May 9, 2020 and will close on October 31, 2020.

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 at communitygardenmason@gmail.com.

This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends, meet neighbors, and share in a wonderful community event.
