A few months ago my husband and I noticed a home at the corner of 10th and Walnut that had been there for decades was suddenly no longer there. We started watching what was going on as we drove by. We noticed what looked like water spickets protruding out of the ground all over the lot where the old house once stood. We wondered what the owner was doing with the lot.
Last week the mystery was solved. We drove by and saw a sign stating community garden with some information.
This is the City of Blue Springs Missouri's first community garden! The Blue Springs Community Garden is located in Central Park on the corner of Walnut and 10th Street. The community garden will be a shared piece of land. The land is subdivided into individual plots to grow vegetables and flowers.
There are an estimated 35 plots and 5 raised plant beds that will be available to residents of Blue Springs to rent for the 2012 growing season. The community garden will have water access and participants will be able to plant both vegetables and flowers in their plots.
Per the Blue Springs City Website, plots are available at $50 on a first-come-first-served basis. If you would like to reserve a plot, call (816) 228-0137.
Don't miss your opportunity for your own vegetable or flower garden plot!
