2016 Garden Opening

The Faith Church plots (north of the fence line) are cultivated, marked off and ready to be planted. The Manitowoc Company plots (south of the fence line) will be ready to plant after the leaves have spread and tilled in, and the plots are marked.

If your plot doesn't get any leaves and you would like some, contact Ron or Ken and we will try to bring some to your plot and till them in.

There are several piles of aged horse manure throughout the garden, which gardeners are welcome to use in your plots.

We cannot connect to the fire hydrant for water as we have in the past. We are still exploring other options for water for the garden.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help open the garden should call, text or email Ron or NyiaLong using the contact info below.
There are still plots available for the 2016 season!
Updated map of available plots is here: Current Map
Contact Ron or NyiaLong to register.

Gardeners with church in background.

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 ]
