Elk River offers a community garden

An Elk River Community Garden will be offered again this year.

A kick-off informational meeting will be held from 7–8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24 at Lions Park Center, 1104 Lions Park Dr., Elk River.

The city of Elk River is renting 10-by-10-foot garden plots in Orono Park. Fee to rent one is $35, or $30 for Elk River residents.

To rent a plot, register at www.erpr.org or in person at the Elk River Parks and Recreation office at City Hall, 13065 Orono Parkway, Elk River. Once a gardener’s registration is received, he or she will be sent an informational packet in the mail.

Renters are responsible for planting, weeding and harvesting their own plot. Master gardeners will be available on some Saturdays at the garden to share their advice and expertise.
