Each year, beginning in April, Community Action Services and Food Bank rents small garden plots to families with limited yard space so they are able to grow their own fresh produce alongside their neighbors and other community members. All members of the community are welcome to rent a garden plot. There are five Community Action gardens in Provo:
- North Park Neighborhood Garden (690 N. 100 W.)
- Franklin South Garden (700 S. 300 W.)
- Franklin Park Garden (100 S. 1050 W.)
- Tye Rae Garden (1063 N. 950W.)
Garden plots are 4 ft. x 15 ft. Water and tools will be provided by Community Action Services and Food Bank. However, each renter will be responsible for watering, weeding and maintaining their individual plot.
It is $15 to rent a plot for the entire season.
Community Action Services and Food Bank , the USU Extension, and Provo Community Gardens have teamed up to teach you how to produce a flourishing garden and how to become the best chef on your block. These classes will walk you from planning your garden and starting sprouts to harvesting and making delicious meals from what you have grown. Classes will be held at the South Franklin Community Center (770S. 700W., Provo) from 5:30PM to 6:30PM, every-other Thursday. All Classes are FREE.
We hope that you will join us from seed to success!
