Sign Up for Space in Madrid Community Gardens

Get ready for warm weather and plan your garden now! Sign up for either a 4 x 4 foot or a 4 x 8 foot raised bed in the Madrid Community Garden. Reserve a gardens for a $20 refundable deposit. These small garden plots will produce lots of fresh vegetables to feed your family. Depending on the size of plot you choose and the type of plants you decide to use, you can harvest and plant again for a fall crop. Compact planting prevents weed growth and conserves water. Your crops can be reached easily from all sides of the garden bed.

The Gardens are open to anyone with a Madrid address. For more information or to reserve your bed, please contact Rhonda Reynolds Bingman at 515-480-7017. The number of plots is limited.
