2015 Garden is Open!


Our volunteer farmers have plowed and cultivated the gardens. Most plot boundaries are marked. We have water lines to the 250 gallon tote in the middle of the garden. We will try to keep it filled so some water is always available. Water only will on be turned on while a water monitor is available to watch for pipe breaks and other problems. We hope to install irrigation lines throughout the entire garden this week, as well as adding more totes/barrels.

Do not crowd the lanes when you plant as we will be widening and grading them to reduce potholes and low spots.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help should call, text or email Ron or Nyialong using the contact info below.

The Manitowoc Community Garden is a non-profit collaboration open to everyone in our community. Because of the generosity of Faith Evangelical Free Church and The Manitowoc Company, we have a total of 45 acres for our garden site. Please consider joining us in this fun and productive community activity!

Everyone is welcome!

The Manitowoc Community Garden offers free garden space to any church or civic group to grow produce for local food pantries.

Soil Analysis Results
(Analysis of all samples is now complete.)

[ I did a spring spreading of 350 lbs of 6-20-31-5s-.5zn on my 1/2 acre plot as recommended by Country Visions Co-op based on the soil analysis results. The recommendation was based on the results from the north end of the garden (which was all that was available at the time). The cost was $17.50 per 50 lb bag. --Ron ]
