Garden Layout

**This section is currently under development.

Gardener Layout The garden has thirty-eight 4'x10' raised bed plots that are used by members as part of their membership, plus an area that is specifically designed to accommodate persons with disabilities (see "Bucket Containers").

In addition to the raised beds and "bucket container" gardening area, there is also several "Common Beds" around the perimeter of the garden. Click on the image to the right for a larger PDF of the garden layout.

We are always thinking of ways to improve the garden, so don't be surprised if you see fruit trees in the garden.

Garden Plots are assigned in Sept. each year. Returning members simply need to renew, and any available plots are assigned by lottery. Send us an email if you'd like to be added to the lottery list.

Example: 4' x 10' Plot

Inspired by Rick Smith, garden Board Member, Bucket Containers are an ingenious design that allows persons with mobility and physical challenges to grow vegetables under easier conditions - no bending down to work a traditional raised bed plot. If you are disabled or have physical challenges but would like to join the fun at the glee Community Garden, just let us know! For more information about this system, click here or on the image below.

There are several Common Beds around the perimeter of the garden which are a wonderful way for members to help the garden be as productive as possible. Common Beds are maintained by a group of gardeners who are assigned to a particular area. You and your fellow team members will decide what to grown, how to grow it, when to water, and when to harvest. The only rule is that you agree only to harvest from Common Beds if you have helped water and maintain them. If you'd like to be included in a Common Bed team, simply let us know by email.
