It's growing season at DeVries!
There’s no better way to rejuvenate one’s spirit after another long and frigid winter than by starting a garden. The DeVries Community Garden is once again offering garden plots to the public. Each 20 by 20 foot plot can be rented for the season for $25 ($20 for DeVries’ members). A deposit equal to the rental fee is required and will be refunded in the fall if the plots are maintained properly and cleaned up at the end of the season. A Community Garden Agreement and Release of All Claims must be completed and returned to participate. Both forms are available below.
Weather permitting, the plots will be staked out, tilled, and ready to plant by May 15. Participants who do not want their plots tilled should contact DeVries no later than May 10. Water will be accessible on-site, and Dirk, the Farm Manager, will be available all summer to answer questions and provide gardening tips to all participants. See you outside!
