Community garden plots available in the Mid-Willamette Valley
Several community gardens associated with Marion-Polk Food Share have rental plots available for the 2011 growing season. Prices and plot sizes vary. Visit the Marion-Polk Food Share website for a list of garden locations and availability, plus contact info for each garden.
Marion-Polk Food Share partners with volunteers, church groups, and other organizations to operate over 30 community gardens in Marion and Polk Counties. These gardens produce food for distribution at local pantries, as well as the gardeners who cultivate the soil.
