Residents of Powell who would like to grow fresh produce, establish a sense of community and meet other Powell neighbors are invited to rent a garden bed at the Powell Kiwanis Community Garden in Arbor Ridge Park.
A limited number of 4×8 raised garden beds will be available to rent April-October dependent upon frost dates. Only organic gardening practices will be permitted (organic fertilizer, herbicide or pesticide applications) and initially only one garden rental will be available per family.
A Community Garden provides a unique opportunity to grow your own produce, donate what you have grown if you wish, and develop a sense of community spirit. A Community Garden brings added beauty to an area, and is recognized by many police departments as an effective crime prevention strategy.
If you would like to register for a garden bed in Powell’s Community Garden, please visit the City’s Municipal Building at 47 Hall Street. The cost is $30 for residents and $60 for non-residents. Upon registration, you will receive a full program description including policies and procedures for the garden. Previous tenants have the first right of refusal for their previous plot through an early registration email.
The 2021 Community Garden is full. We encourage you to get on the waitlist by sending an email to Gina Kolp at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can added to the priority list for 2022.
