They say April showers bring May flowers. For the Castle Rock Community Garden, the warmer months mean homegrown fruits and vegetables. Those looking to get in on the gardening fun can submit a plot application starting April 1.
The Community Garden is a non-profit, community-based and volunteer-run project located at Glovers Park, 534 S. Gilbert St. It was first approved by Town Council in 2012 and is currently supported by the Parks and Recreation Department.
Residents can lease one of the 23 available plots for the season. Only one plot is granted per household, and plot applications are approved on a first-come, first-served basis. Plots are approximately 5 feet by 8 feet and can be leased for $40 a season.
Please note, water at the Community Garden will be turned on Monday, April 15, weather permitting.
Throughout the growing season, gardeners may keep whatever they grow. However, participants are encouraged to donate some of their produce to the Help and Hope Center.
Application information is available at CRgov.com/commgarden.
