The Sun Prairie Community Garden (SPCGO) provides gardening opportunities for those who desire to rent space where they can grow vegetables for home-use, in an open and welcoming community environment. The site is leased to Sun Prairie Community Garden Organization from the City of Sun Prairie. Garden plots are available for a seasonal fee to anyone that resides within Sun Prairie city limits, resides within the Sun Prairie Area School District, or works within the city limits. The community garden, located at 1349 Linnerud Drive next to the public library, has 143 plots. A full plot (18' x 24') rents for $35 and a half plot (9' x 24') is $20 for the season. The annual rental fee includes access to water, garden tools, raspberries, and rhubarb. Free flower plots are also available to gardeners.
Returning gardeners are given first priority to a plot. New gardeners are assigned a plot on a first come, first served basis. New plots will be awarded by late April. If no plots are available in the garden, you will be put on a waitlist and notified when one becomes available. Applications for a plot in the community garden are accepted beginning in late January.
