Are you interested in having a place to grow vegetables, flowers or herbs? Is your yard too shady or do you have too many deer to have a garden? If the answer is yes, you may be interested in a community garden.
The City of Ellisville has established an organic (no pesticides) Community Garden for Ellisville residents. The garden opened in the spring of 2017. Ellisville residents interested in a plot can complete a Gardner Application online or in the Parks Administration Building. Plots are 4 by 8, cost $25.00 per year and are assigned using a lottery system. The garden includes individual planting plots, access to water and a fence around the perimeter to keep deer from helping themselves to your garden. The garden is adjacent to the softball fields by Oak Hill Trail in Bluebird Park.
