IMG_1940 garden 4 5_33 180pThe Community Garden, located under the power lines off Canyon View Road across from Juniper Hill, is provided by the Greenwood Garden Committee for residents to raise fresh vegetables and other annuals during the growing season. The garden was expanded in 2013 to accommodate the increasing demand for plots. News and information about the garden is also available at the the garden website:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Greenwood_Garden.

The garden is operated and maintained by volunteers who roto-till, lay out plots and install fencing and water taps. Additionally, the Garden Committee organizes, communicates and coordinates the “rental” of these plots to Greenwood residents and assists those residents in setting up their garden plots.

Each year the committee provides a process for renting a plot and maintains a wait list when all plots have been rented. The cost for renting these plots is $20.00 per year and is available only for Greenwood residents. For information on renting a plot please contact the Greenwood Office 330-467-7036 or email the garden committee at greenwood_garden-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.
