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 an organic (no pesticides) Community Garden for Ellisville residents. The garden opened in the spring of 2017. Plots are 4 by 8 and cost $25.00 per year. 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. If you are interested in renting a garden plot, send an email to Meghan Fadler at email@example.com and include your name, address and phone number and she will add you to the waiting list for community garden plots. Or call the Parks and Recreation office at 636-227-7508 to be added to the list.
