2016 Meeting
Note meeting location change!

The 2016 gardener meeting is Saturday, April 2, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM, at the HUI Center, 1517 Washington Street, Manitowoc. (Former Hmong Community Center. Across from the old Mirro building.)
2016 Garden Opening

The opening date is largely weather dependent, specifically depending on when the fields have dried enough for our volunteer farmers to cultivate. The garden opens shortly after the fields are cultivated. In good (dry) years the garden has opened in early May; in bad (wet) years the garden has opened in early June.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help open the garden 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!

We are taking registrations for the 2016 season. 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 ]
