Do you want to grow your own fresh produce as part of a community of gardeners? If so, this is an opportunity that you won’t want to miss!

The Columbia-Adair County Community Garden has set aside a fraction of its raised bed plots; 8 x 8 ft in dimension, for rental use this year.



Aside from the plots, participants will also be provided with a variety of vegetable seeds and transplants; with a retail value of at least $25, plant supports (trellises, stakes, etc.), and access to a shared set of garden tools and fertilizers.

All of this is available for $35-$45 per year depending on the rental period. Subscribers can rent plots for the full gardening season (May 1- November 15) for $45 or for the summer alone (May 1-September 30) for just $35.

The Community Garden is located at the intersection of West Guardian and South Monroe; directly behind the Adair County Food Pantry on property owned by the Columbia Methodist Church. The location is excellent for gardening with fertile soil, good light exposure, and free water (courtesy the Methodist Church).

Application forms, including seed/plant lists, are available from the garden coordinator, Mike Bosela by e-mail (boselam@lindsey.edu) or phone 270-384-8192. The deadline for enrolling is May 15 2018, but the raised bed planters will be rented on a first-come, first-served basis so be sure to act soon to guarantee yourself a spot. Summer garden transplants (tomatoes, peppers, etc.) will be available starting May 15 and Fall transplants (broccoli, cabbage, etc.) will be available by August 15, 2018. Plots can be rented by individuals, families, or whole groups; boy scouts, church youth groups, etc. Questions should be addressed to Mike Bosela (contact information above):
