Why Garden?

 

The garden is a place where people can enjoy being outdoors, whether working alone or bonding as a family.  It is a place where people can grow tasty, nutritious pesticide-free food.  People can feel a sense of accomplishment at the garden as they become better at growing plants of their choices, as well as a feeling of independence and empowerment in knowing they can provide for their own basic needs in a sustainable manner.

 

We are happy to announce that Greener Oconomowoc's Worthington Street Community Garden has been open since May 31, 2011! 

 

How Does the Oconomowoc's Garden Work?

 

The garden has 35 separate 10 foot plots that rent for only $25 each. Water, hoses and sprinkler heads are included for use with these fee. A six foot high fence surrounds the gardens to keep out deer and other wildlife.

 

 

The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department lists the availability of gardening plots in its Spring/Summer Activities Booklets that are sent to all City of Oconomowoc households as well as beyond the city limits. Garden rules and guidelines are listed on their website, as well as reservation and liability waiver forms composed by the city attorney's office.
