Spring is here and so is the opening Villa Park’s Community Garden! For the first time ever, the garden is located at Westmore Park (between Westmore Ave, Biermann Ave, Sunset Dr and Plymouth St). Plots are available to community members of all ages who want to grow vegetables for themselves and their community. Anyone who has a green thumb or wants to learn about gardening is welcome.
Plots are available for purchase year-round and become open again when the season ends. The fee to reserve a plot is $10. If you want to reserve a spot for yourself or your organization, signups are on a first come, first served basis at the Iowa Community Center or the Villa Park Public Library—hurry, they’re going fast!
Planting may begin on May 15th, and those who share pictures of their vegetables grown in these plots will be given an additional “thank you” gift for their partnership in helping make the community more vibrant and healthy.
