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.
