The eagerly awaited moment has arrived for gardening enthusiasts in the community. According to the City of Sweet Home’s Facebook page, the community garden at Strawberry Park is officially open for reservations. There are a limited number of plots available.

“We’re excited to announce that our Community Garden is now ready for reservations,” said city officials. “We have 10 plots available but could expand in the future if there is enough demand.”

Each plot is priced at $25 per year, offering a cost-effective opportunity for residents to cultivate their green thumbs. Plots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so swift action is encouraged.

To secure your plot, interested parties must visit City Hall at 3225 Main St. in person. Upon arrival, individuals will be required to sign a waiver of liability and pay the nominal fee. The $25 lease ensures exclusive access to your plot until December 31st.

“Some rules do apply and are clearly stated on the waiver of liability that must be signed,” said city officials. “We will also be making a waiting list in case future plots come available or someone has a plot revoked due to negligence or breaking the rules.”

Watering facilities are conveniently available on-site, although lessees will need to provide their own watering cans and gardening tools. Additionally, lessees are entrusted with the full care and maintenance of their plots, though collaboration with fellow gardeners is encouraged.

In anticipation of future opportunities, organizers will maintain a waiting list for prospective gardeners. This list will prove invaluable should additional plots become available or if any lessees fail to adhere to the established guidelines.

The city will provide an update on their facebook page once the plots have been sold out or you may also call to check on the status.

For more information or to reserve your plot, visit City Hall and ask for Cindi or Adam when you come in.
