Did you know that the City of Eden Prairie offers community garden plots to persons who live or work in Eden Prairie?
These plots of land provide a planting space for vegetables, flowers and other plants for the summer months. The plots are plowed under and ready for planting in May, and all fencing and stakes need to be removed by October 15, so the plots can be plowed again. Prices range from $54 to $108, with reduced rates for residents over age 55.

Applications and payment are currently being accepted for the 2011 growing season. Returning gardeners are given priority until April 15, and new gardeners’ plot preferences will be issued in order of the applications and payments received. All gardeners will be notified of plot assignments in late April.
It’s time to start planning for the warm summer growing season…and if you need some extra gardening land, rent a space from the City and join the gardening community in Eden Prairie!
