Garden plots are sold out for 2021.  Please email if you would like to be added to the waitlist in case more plots can be created for this season, or check back in winter 2022 for garden plot rental for the 2022 season.

Community garden plots are offered at the Main Property in West St. Paul and Shepard Farm in Cottage Grove. The garden package includes a 15′ x 15′ plot, water, use of tools, and compost as a soil amendment. Gardens will be open daylight hours throughout the season, closing in October of 2021. Cost: $125 per plot. Plots are assigned on a first come first served basis; registration for garden rentals each year is closed in mid-May or when sold out. The minors permission form must be signed if you plan on having youth under the age 18 join you on-site.
